GB celebrates Holi at Juhu Beach on Monday – 17th March 2014
Timings – 11:30am until 1:30pm
Meeting Point: The Shivaji statue near The Ramada Inn Palm Grove untill 12:00 Noon The statue is just off the main beach.
For those who have never experienced Holi on Juhu beach get set for a wild and fun-filled day. Juhu beach has always been a favourite destination for Mumbai-ites on Holi. The sea turns a deep shade of red that morning as gulal-smeared young men throw off their clothes and plunge into the waters in huge numbers.
Look for a bunch of guys who are standing under the palm trees near the wall of the Ramada Inn, we’ll be looking out for you, too. If you are late look for us on the beach and in the water nearby!
GB, as a support group, has created this comfort/safe space for gays. Many people at the event may be “newbies” (those still coming to terms with their sexuality and/or those who have mustered the courage to come to such an event for the first time). We request you to be sensitive to the comfort levels of others and to behave and dress accordingly.
If you wish to bring your own colours (Gulal) please make sure they are good quality, safe, and non-permanent.
Pre-packed, Branded gulaal (with consistency of talcum powder) are now commonly available in shops everywhere.
