Watch Keshav Suri, Lalit Hotel Scion and LGBTQ Activist, Dance in Drag With His Mother
Resplendent in a gown, make-up and a blonde wig, Suri matched steps with his mother on stage to a crowd of cheering onlookers.

Keshav Suri, son of the late hotelier Lalit Suri and Executive Director of Lalit Hotels, has long been an outspoken voice over equal rights for the LGBTQ community, and prior to the Supreme Court's landmark decision earlier this year to overturn Section 377 had filed petitions to the apex court requesting the Victorian-era law to be done away with.

Despite his long association with gay rights one might think he'd hesitate to put his money where his mouth is but Suri has no intentions of shying away from what close-minded people may say. The hotelier, who recently married his partner in a private ceremony, performed to classic Hindi song, Kaisi Paheli Zindagani, in full drag along with his mother.

Resplendent in a gown, make-up and a blonde wig, Suri matched steps with his mother on stage to a crowd of cheering onlookers. Posting the video, Suri wrote, "Okay so maybe this needs to go viral. My mother and i performed together for my very first Drag performance. My mother is an inspiration to millions, she is mother india. She not only has made life better for me, now with this, is showing parents how its done" (sic)

And that is how it's done. More power to you, Keshav.
