Call for Articles: ‘Maya’ – Law, Gender and Sexuality Magazine: Submit by Aug 10


We are proud to announce the launch of Maya, a magazine run by students of Jindal Global University (Sonipat).

[Maya – ‘love’ in Nepali, ‘courage and bravery’ (Maia) in Maori, ‘illusion’ in Sanskrit]

Maya is a unique initiative of the LGBTQI community of Jindal Global University, Sonipat (India). We seek to provide an avenue for discussions on issues of gender and sexuality. We also wish to serve as a platform for queer visibility and engagement across universities in India and abroad. We have already published our first issue.

We aim to publish articles, case comments, book/film reviews, campus reports, poetry, stories and art on the intersection of law, and gender and sexuality. We seek new and original writing tackling contemporary legal issues in this field.

You can visit our website to get an idea of the kind of legal articles that we have published. We also welcome non-legal submissions if it pertains to the theme of the magazine.
