Editorial Reviews

Nestled in the Southern Indian State of TamilNadu, is the village Koovagam, where every year, thousands of Eunuchs gather for the Aravani Festival and marry the warrior God Aravan. "The Celestial Brides" brings to the forefront this one-of- a kind ancient tradition, which gives Godly status and religious approval to the Eunuchs, who otherwise, are victims of neglect, alienation and sexual prejudice.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This documentary is one of the very few available on the often-silenced subject of the transgendered hijra devotees of India and is excellent for use in classes on gender, sexuality, and religion. My only complaint is that it is too brief, but I still recommend it highly. Blackthorn Krause, CA

This documentary may only be 1/2 hour long, but it is historically and emotionally full of strong personal testimony and information. It's focus is on a yearly festival where for a few, short happy days, hijra's (also known as other names and in various categories) are allowed to freely celebrate their sexuality. It's honesty is in parts sad (in many parts of Eastern India, homosexuality is a crime, punishable by 10 years in prison), but it is in the end, triumphant, as they have found a loving and strong and accepted place with people of the same mind and beliefs. Very highly recommended.
