With 25 editions of TQC, we’ve reached a new milestone! To commemorate our journey, TQC's best articles from 2009-2011 have been compiled in exactly the same formats they were first published. We would like to thank our writers, guest columnists, photographers, artists and everyone who has helped to put TQC on India’s queer map.

THE

BEST OF

TQC 2009 2010 2011

We dedicate this special edition to our readers in over 20 countries, for making TQC what it is today. Warm regards, Keith - Editor, TQC

----------------------------------------------------------------REVIEWS “Wishing The Queer Chronicle a very Happy 2nd Birthday. You have been a major component of the revolution we all have brought to Pune. We can proudly say that now, PUNE is a Queer Friendly City and YES we too have a SCENE!!” - Sagar Dave, Co-founder Birds of a Feather, Pune. “The special 25th issue is a treasure from the word go. It’s a collector delight for all those who missed the action since long and for those who want to refresh their memory. Wish it was printed, to preserve and pickup/carry whenever and where-ever. Kudos to the team and hoping to see you guys come out with the 250th issue. Thank you.” - Syed Ali Arif, Artist. “Congratulations! A milestone indeed..and here’s to the next 25! Big Cheers!” - Nakul Munim, Co-founder Salvation Star, Mumbai. “One of the best online reads!” - Azaad Bazaar, Mumbai. “Read all of it! Wonderful compilation.” - Niki Ray, Pune.
