Highlighting the silenced voices of society, through storytelling.
As an Indian-American raised Catholic and in Texas, I spent most of my life ashamed of being gay. There was no representation of anyone like me. After a life changing trip to my family's homeland in India, I realized my shame was never actually mine; it was society's shame projected on to me. Unshaming is about all the the powerful stories of other people that center around this same revelation.
I'm a journalist, but at my core, I'm a storyteller. I dream of one day taking the message of Unshaming to mainstream audiences. I’m not an expert on shame but more so a student. So while you’re listening, learning, and unshaming, I will be too.
