Andrew McMillan is a young British homosexual man. He writes about this reality and is part of a tradition that in the past century has been an important mouthpiece for the male segment of the queer movement. Tishani Doshi is writing a work about gender-based violence in India. Her poem Girls are coming out of the woods is read as a manifesto for the voiceless women who are subjected to sexual assault. They are found at all levels of Indian society and both rich and poor women face social challenges that have caused them to remain silent, up until now. Salma, who is a Tamil poet and prose author, depicts women from the Tamil minority in southern India. All these authors write for a group to which they personally belong. For a community. Meet them in conversation with host Ane Dorte Lunås.
