Some inspirational developments have taken place at the 9th Delhi Queer Pride Parade held on Sunday, November 27, 2016. Amongst these was a story of a DU student who hails from a town close to Meerut. This student is developing an app for the LGBT community.

The 19-year-old student is gay. He ran away from his house to pursue higher education and found the motivation to develop an app that will provide a support group for individuals who belong to the LGBT community and feel secluded because of the fear and pressure that they have to undergo.

With the support of his partner who is perusing engineering, he plans to develop an app that will help the LGBT community to overcome their fears. Talking about the app, the student’s partner said that it is easy to offer words of support but providing logistical support is what matters and that’s what the app will do for the LGBT people.

He further added that the app will help all those who are fearful and intimidated by the society or their surroundings and will help them step out of that place to make a fresh start. They will also provide food, accommodation and other assistance to such individuals.

The app will enable people of the LGBT community to connect with each other. It will comprise an SOS button that a member can press in his/her time of trouble to alert the others in the group. Pressing the button will pick the location of the individual and will send it to the other members in the group. The student also informed that the app is almost ready and will be launched in January 2017.

Talking about his personal experiences, the student said that he had gone through a difficult phase in his life and does not want anyone else to face the same. Though he spent a lot of time hiding as he was overpowered by fear but now he has an ambition in his life. He is also happy that he has found support and acceptance in his partner’s parents.
