The film's Director, Faraz Arif Ansari, has won the prestigious Humanitarian Award for Outstanding Achievement at the Best Shorts Competition, which is the film's 38th international award. Three prominent LGBTQ activists (from India and from Chicago) will discuss the film and speak to the experiences of South Asians as well as South Asian diaspora in North America.
