Pink Pages is an Indian LGBT magazine.

Background[edit]

Pink Pages was founded by Udayan in 2009 as editor in chief.[1][2] The magazine is distributed online free of cost and has readers and contributors from across India, making it an LGBT magazine with a national focus. Pink Pages, combines politics, activism and interviews with celebrities, lifestyle stories and readers’ own personal accounts.[3][4]

The first issue was released within days of the historic Delhi High Court judgement decriminalizing homosexuality in India.[5][6]

Pink Pages was denied permission to print by the Registrar of Newspapers in India in October 2010, which was widely viewed as a homophobic act by the Government body.[7][8]

Among the authors is Harish Iyer, prominent gay rights activist from Mumbai.[9]
