Aditya Bondyopadhyay

My name is Aditya Bondyopadhyay. I am a lawyer based in Delhi, India. For the last 25 years, I have worked on LGBT rights issues in India and other South Asian Countries. I have exclusively focused on LGBT legal matters, pro bono, for the last 10 years. I was one of the founder member of the two most active international LGBT/MSM networks in the world and in Asia respectively. These are namely the "Global Forum for MSM" and the "Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health". I served on their boards for years, till I retired a few years ago. Now I undertake community building work with young LGBT and do litigation to ensure their rights to health, education, and safety/dignity. I have also been closely linked with the litigation and social movement to decriminalise decriminalise homosexuality in India. I am 45 years old. An age where I have experience in international, regional, and domestic LGBT networking and it's processes, while still being young enough to act as a peer to young LGBT in distress or need.
