Khush (film)

Khush is a 1991 British short film directed by Pratibha Parmar. It portrays lesbians and gay men from India and other parts of Asia, discussing their coming out and their acceptance and embracing of their sexuality. Khush also discusses homosexuality in the Indian disaspora.

It includes interviews and has segments of dancing and artwork. In Urdu, "Khush" means "ecstatic pleasure". This is Parmar's seventh film. Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, the author of Women Film Directors: An International Bio-critical Dictionary, wrote that Khush was "one of [Parmar's] best-known lesbian-centered films."

The director stated that Khush was written as a "dialogue" involving South Asian LGBT diasporas. E. Ann Kaplan, author of Looking for the Other: Feminism, Film and the Imperial Gaze, stated that Khush "addresses the dual formation of colonialism as patriarchical and homophobic-a homophobia that uncannily found an echo within Indian culture itself".
