    TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - Sunil Gupta's photographic portraits address
contemporary issues of gender and sexuality in Delhi, India. Today, people are
meeting less in parks and secluded areas and more on the internet, and in
"private" parties. Gay nights at local clubs in Delhi are always sign-posted
as private parties in a fictitious person's name to get around Section 377, a
British colonial law, which criminalizes homosexuality in India. In "Mr
Malhotra's Party", Gupta visualizes this latest queer space with a series of
portraits of 'real' people who identify their sexuality as 'queer' in some
way. These individuals confront the camera as they are now willing to identify
themselves. Situated in Delhi's crowded urban landscape, where people live and
work Gupta's subjects are part of the vernacular, the everyday, and proudly
embrace their identity.
