Calcutta-based fashion photographer, Amit Dey, recently did a photo series titled "Coy Mistress". It focuses on the dual lives that people from the LGBT community have to live because of the pressures of society.
Being bisexual himself and having noticed his friends from the community, he realised that a lot of people were hiding their sexual identities, with all parties suffering in the process. "I wanted to make a point about love having no bar on gender. It just happens and we cannot predict how or when it does," Dey said.
