Actor Richa Chadha chosen as the face of the Pride Month in India by the US Consulate
June is celebrated as the Pride Month across the world and many celebrities too join in to show their support. Actor Richa Chadha is one such name who has always been vocal about LGBTQ rights through several mediums. Owing to her constant support, the US consulate has now roped her in for a special promotion of the Pride Month in India. It’s a mark of their celebration of the month and they sought to have Richa as the person leading the way with an example. The team will use social media initiatives to help Richa's opinions reach a wide section of the audiences for awareness.
Speaking about it, Richa says, "A month dedicated to the LGBTQ community gives us an opportunity to bring up this conversation. Now the Draconian 377 has been repealed, slowly and steadily we can aim at removing social prejudice. It's an honor for me to be considered by the US Consulate in India as a supporter of this movement."
Recently, Humsafar Trust, the leading NGO for the LGBTQ community in the country, chose Richa as its face to inaugurate India’s first ever holistic medical centre for the people of the community to help them break away from stigmas of general discrimination they may face.
