June 2010

In an essay in The Telegraph (Kolkata), Rahul Mehta, author of Quarantine, a collection of short stories about gay Indian men, recalls how he told his mother he was gay. It happened 13 years ago, when his parents visited him in North Carolina, as he was graduating from college.

“When I told my mother, she was surprised, which in turn surprised me—how could she possibly not know,” he writes. “If she was upset, she hid it. She said something about understanding that I was born this way. She said she was glad that I was moving to New York City, where I could find a “gay-positive community.” I asked her where she learned the term and she smiled and said, ‘Oprah.’”
