Our August issue of @cosmoindia ft. the multi-talented @tarasutaria is here! My recent love for colour on the eyes (especially BLUEs) is evident... I find it plays off our big brown eyes beautifully. I really enjoy pushing the envelop on basic beauty and accessing parts of our theatrical, celebratory culture that we don't get to enjoy as often as we'd like. Thank you Cosmo and Tara for allowing me to express myself and my creative journey, even if in small simple ways🤗😘 Editor: @nandinibhalla Fashion Stylist: @samar.rajput05 Photographer: @nishanth.radhakrishnan Hair and Make-up: @eltonjfernandez assisted by @krishnakami

Most of my finest friends are women... I find it easiest to bond with and nurture meaningful relationships with them. A big "Thank You" and immense love to each of these incredible women that have loved, supported and kept it real with me with their strength and unique personality. Needless to say, there are more that I couldn't fit into this collage, but these nine will always have the most special place in my lil boy heart ❤️ Happy Friendship Day every day of the year.

Thank you to each and every single one of you that took the time out to comment on the recent posts on @officialhumansofbombay and my page. I've recvd and read countless messages - many of which have filled my hearts reserve. these floral tattoos I had made by @ronystattoo were in many ways my personal method of processing a lifetime of feeling, growth and grief. These past couple years have been rife with disappointment, betrayal and loss of relationships. Yet my career has grown heaps, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Thank you to anyone that sees/hears/feels me - for ur support and ur love. I have so many more life experiences and learnings I'd like to share openly with the world, but I hope there will come a more appropriate moment. Maybe some day I'd be urged to write my memoirs. Revisiting so much of our past experiences can be painful. But this is the arc of Life and learning. I hope we each remember to grow like the lotus from the mud - thru whatever dirt surrounds us. P.S. @ronystattoo really made me the best tattoos and so quickly and efficiently... She travelled all the way from Pune to Bombay for them - thank you D!🤗❣️ I absolutely love flowers - they bloom if only for a short moment in time, and die so unceremoniously. But these on my body will last a lifetime. That fills me with hope and joy😊

“I lived in Hyderabad & realised I was gay in college. But I was scared to come out. I was teased by boys in class for the way I was. Once outside a nightclub, a few boys surrounded me & rubbed chili powder in my eye. My best friend who was in another city, told me to accept myself & fight the bullies. After a few days, he stopped replying to my texts or calls. Finally his mom told me that he’d committed suicide, because he couldn’t take living in this world. I was devastated. The last thing he said to me, was to stand up for myself. So that’s when I came out to my parents, my dad was disappointed & my mom cast spells to remove the ‘demons’ out of me. It was toxic. This went on for 2 years, until one day I decided my parents idea of homosexuality can’t define my life. So I left home & came to Mumbai. I was always fascinated by arts & glamour, even my granddad was a choirmaster. I was finally free & liberated. From giving an Indian Idol audition, to doing theatre & makeup, I did it all! And after 6 months, I got a job in make up! I made so many friends & had such nurturing relationships. My mom's sister, was my only family in Mumbai & she accepted me with open arms. But the turning point was when I was fired from my job because of a fight with another employee. I remember crying outside the shop. But I knew that if I’d fought to be myself, I had to do the same, for my dreams. I used to sit for hours at a cafe, with my portfolio—to find a job. I was broke for days, but I didn’t give up. finally got my first project, after months, to do make up for a film called ‘ I Am’, starring Juhi Chawla! That was my crowning moment, it was all up & above from there. It’s been 13 years & today I have some of the best brands & people in the industry to work with. When I visit my parents, my mom still can’t accept me, but my father, he only asks for forgiveness—because although he can’t accept me because of his religion, he still loves me for who I am. I feel grateful that I put my fears aside & went for what I wanted. I’m happy that when life threw me curve balls, I kicked them to the curb. Because that helped me create my legacy today, one that I'm proud of. #fitmeasiam

eltonjfernandez

Thank you ever so much team @reverie.india // just a couple clarifications - I mentioned MalaikaArora and a couple others as some of the humblest celebs I've had the good chance to work with; we aren't friends (as much as I wudve loved to be chatting them up on WhatsApp every week) teehee. Also, I too come from a fairly humble background of nobody's - just relatively exposed to a big city state of mind, which helped my journey. Also, my last name is spelled Fernandez with a 'Z' ☺️

I've watched @vir_shete grow from an insecure 15 year old boy many years ago into the finest version of himself today... Every year im amazed by his steady growth and incredibly fierce and fascinating personality. U inspire me Vir, and im so proud to have experienced your wonderful friendship and hearty love. I know ur not really my biological son, but if i had one, id want him to be so very much like you - strong in ur fierceness as in ur vulnerability. Wish you a super 27th year and may you continue to reach for the stars and represent a winning future India✨ P. S. I LOVE YOU MY LIL PUMPKIN 🎃 #lgbtqia for the win...

Thank you Maithili Chakravarthy at the @freepressjournal for including my thoughts on India being ready for gay marriage and adoption. Here's an excerpt from our conversation.... I must reiterate that I'm all for equal rights, and all love between consenting adults. I'm also pro-adoption. Matter of fact, I'd love to have children too. But I cannot imagine how hard growing up with gay parents wud be in india Rn. I think we need more time as a country - to expand a collective mindset, to fight with dignity and logic, to change policy so we have more in our favour in a court of law, to elect younger progressive leaders into power. We need our textbooks and education system to be inclusive enough to support these equal human rights so teachers/doctors/police & other professionals who are supposed to serve us and other minorities, actually understand us & their own roles better. Us urban folk may well be able to stay afloat thru social stigma, but our urban reality is far removed from the rest of this country. The fight must continue, and many of us will need to make bigger personal sacrifices before we affect change for India at large.

Thank you @lfsconclave and @fadinternational for inviting me to be a part of your panel this afternoon at the iconic @tajhotels alongside inspiring panelists. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my personal views on inclusive beauty and raising our collective consciousness to understand what it means to truly be beautiful.
