The Effeminare


Edit "About"
Mr Odyssey Moment

Hi! I’m Anwesh Sahoo, and welcome to my world of ‘Effeminare’! Some of you might know me as the former Mr. Gay World India 2016, and I’m currently a student of Electronics and Communications Engineering at IIIT, Delhi. I have a keen interest in the world of Digital Art and Graphic Design and you can find most of my work on Behance and Instagram. I’m also a freelance writer (find most of recent works at, a model, a dancer and a TEDx speaker. I write voraciously, and I’m a lover of old-school Indian art, music and fashion. While I’d like to believe that I’m a firm believer in practicality, a part of me loves living in a world of possibilities. That’s exactly what “The Effeminare” is all about. A parallel universe where I get to be an illustrator and draw everything I love, from fashion illustrations to a Utopian world I’d want to be a part of. I look at my life as a thrilling mystery novel written by God and since the novel has only started, I’d go with- ‘I am still evolving’!
