Winning against all odds / Priyakanta Laishram

Priyakanta made his first film when he was just 11 years old and won awards for it. That encouraged him more to continue with his filmmaking journey. If not a filmmaker, he would have become an interior designer. He proudly wears makeup and can carry gender-fluid fashion like a badass. He is a successful filmmaker and an actor with quite a lot of awards in hand, both national and international. He is all set to take the world in his stride with his latest film “ Oneness” which is Manipur’s first-ever film on same-sex based on the honour killing of gay youth in the state.

“I have had my fair share of struggles in my independent filmmaking journey, I chose topics that aren’t mainstream and more of social issues which are taboo in our society (Manipur). I would put my heart and soul into making each and every movie and people would just troll them saying it’s a disgrace to society. I would get threatening calls too. I don’t get producers so I struggle financially and try to fund everything from my own pocket. However, there are fans who support, encourage and empower me and never let me stop.”

“I have liked makeup since childhood. I had more liberty in Mumbai, people didn’t judge me there. I wore whatever I wanted, and I started using more makeup, used foundation and other makeup items. But when I went back home (Manipur), people would judge me and call me names.”

“I don’t have a particular person as an inspiration. I am inspired by all the people I meet in my life, I learn something or other from each and every one of them. I like to observe people and try to know them through their stories.”

Priyakanta believes that it is important to come out as an LGBT+ person because they need more representatives in different fields or industries. When there are more LGBT+ representatives, there are chances of changing the society’s mindset and may accept them more. He says one has to accept his/her individuality, and take his/her own stand as everybody has the right to live.

“We should let go of the fear that binds our freedom. We can achieve everything once we are fearless. And my life mantra is- Be the change. If we want changes, then we should be the change first. Also, we should believe in ourselves and we should keep going even when we fail.”
“LGBT+ is misrepresented in most movies, they are portrayed in either a bad light or in mockery. It’s time we bring seriousness and give a sensitive outlook towards it.”
