Hidden Pockets – WGNRR partner from India!

November 3, 2015

Hidden Pockets is a resource centre and collective of young feminist activists, artists, performers, techies, lawyers, and scholars, created in 2014. They locate sexuality within institutions such as law, medicine, and psychology, and in discourses, for instance about prison systems, disability, and economics, with the aim to make these discussions on sexuality more accessible for everyone. Their goal is to create safer online and offline spaces for young people (including from marginalised communities) in New Delhi to talk about sexuality without fear of prejudice, guilt, and control. Seeking to curate positive experiences of young people in New Delhi around sexuality, Hidden Pockets lists non-discriminatory SRHR services on Google Maps as well as events and discussions within the city in order to make them participatory for everyone, including people on the margins.
