"People always ask me why do I support LGBT+ rights and women's rights if I am not a woman and I am not gay? How can I not? How can you not! It is important to care about other people, it is important to uplift other people, it is important to help other people, especially groups who are suppressed."
Amar's grandmother, Veena Singh (1920 - 2017) championed the rights of women pre and post India's independence.
She received the President's award from India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Veena Singh was a passionate advocate for equal opportunities in education for both men and women.
Amar's ancestor, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur (1889 - 1964), is considered India's greatest women's rights activist. She was India's first Health Minister and travelled alongside Mahatma Gandhi fighting for equality. She also found India's first women's education fund.
