In order to provide the LGBTQIA+ community with employment prospects and aid in their rise to prominence in society, “Pride Cafe” was unveiled on Monday in Bengaluru.
What’s it about? Theatre artist Arundathi Nag and drag queen Alex Mathew opened the café, a food truck project of the Solidarity Foundation, Amadeus, and WeWork. The café will be located on the grounds of WeWork Galaxy and will provide meals made by members of the queer community for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks.
The objective: According to Arundathi, the acceptance of people from various backgrounds is essential for society. In order to provide members of the community the chance to interact with society and open up possibilities in the future, children should be informed about the queer community.
- A large chunk of the population lacks knowledge about the non-binary community. A Pride Cafe is a strong as well as versatile way to educate people and create a safe space for interaction and expression. It serves as a model for social innovation and inclusion.
