Elphie is a brightly coloured elephant who is laughed at by regular grey ones. Elphie changes colour to grey in order to fit in, but later learns that one need not hide who one is. The story of Elphie was told to children in Bengaluru by drag artistes on the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia recently. The children who listened to the story were from different backgrounds, many associated with non-governmental organisations who work with the underprivileged. They listened with rapt attention as drag artiste Maya, wearing a sari, and Lady Bai, in a dress and blonde hair, gave a simple but important lesson - one should not laugh at or bully those who are different.
