It was about time that Kolkata opened its first public space for the LGBTQIA+ community to hang and be themselves completely. Kolkata being such a liberal city took some time to open such a space, but it's better late than never! The name Cafe #377 speaks for itself. It celebrates equality, unity, and inclusivity in society.
