“At Vitamin Stree, we aim to do two things:
1) educate our viewers about topics and issues that they might not be aware of, and
2) create conversations and be as inclusive as possible. This piece with Sushant attempts to hit both these targets and hopefully gets a lot more people to have more conversations about Drag.”
