Sri Lanka is a country that thrives on our diversity and differences but oftentimes, many topics of conversation are swept under the carpet, whispered in hushed tones, and never see the light of day. There are battles that we all face on a day to day basis from financial failures to mental health issues to the identification of your sexuality, but because of the ‘forbidden’ nature of these topics of conversation, they’re often forced into the darker parts of society. The internet and Westernization may be slowly changing these conversations and bringing to light issues that we all need to be speaking of, but it’s time that we, as a society, propel this process forward.
