OTT Culture Explores Lesbianism

There are quite a few projects that have come up spotlighting lesbian love

Same-sex love stories with male protagonists, although rare, have still been explored on the Hindi screen, but lesbianism is relatively rarer. The rise of OTT culture has created a platform to explore a variety of subjects. Lesbianism, a taboo word in India, is finding space, too, over the recent past.

There are quite a few projects that have come up spotlighting lesbian love. IANS lists some of these:
