LGBTQ Stories Through Bharathanatyam

This is a wonderful video from the IndianRaga YouTube Channel: Revelations: Celebrating LGBTQ Stories Through Bharathanatyam. You can find out more about the Bharathanatyam dance tradition at Wikipedia.

Here is a summary of the story of the dance as told in words:
The story starts by showing a close, affectionate bond between the Mother and her Daughter when the Mother says that she wants her Daughter to get married soon to a worthy boy. At this point the Daughter finally comes out and tells her Mother the truth about herself. The rest is a constant fight between the two until they reach peace and understanding. At the end, the Mother finally accepts her Daughter as well as her significant other.
