“A lot of people think I’m living in a closet, doing things under the wraps but my mother has been supportive of all my life and career choices since the very beginning. She has always accepted me just the way I am.
But I was often teased and mocked for my feminine mannerisms. I was called all sorts of nicknames.
I remember as a child I was often asked by relatives to perform on certain songs. I was enamoured by the bollywood item songs and loved to dance to them without realising that I’m actually bring laughed at for dancing on item songs.
Even when I went to the weddings with my family wearing the clothes I designed for myself, a few people used to ask Ma, “Why is Honey wearing such clothes?” She has never hesitated to reply to them “That’s it’s his choice, after all. He can dress up any he wants to.”
Even today, when I walk in my balcony, I’m often teased by boys on the bike. They do all sorts of inappropriate actions. I always wonder if enjoying in my balcony in my own damn house, is too much to ask for?” said Rajat Singh
