INDIA JUST DECRIMINALISED CONSENSUAL HOMOSEXUAL SEX ON FREDDIE MERCURY’S BIRTHDAY!
WELCOME TO TWENTYGAYTEEN EVERYONE!
It’s more than that.
This law was abused for open discrimination against all lgbt people.
You could be attacked by homophobes and be jailed instead. You could be reported by your neighbor and bam jailed. You could lose your job by abuse of this law.
This ruling also finalised that being lgbt is not a mental illness.
Did it fully erase homophobia? No but bigots now have no legal power over us
It’s funny how every blog is referring to the sex aspect of it when sex is just a cover for all the scarier stuff that exists in indian society.
Systemic oppression dehumanizes lgbt communities. This was about more than just gay sex.
This was an entire generation of lgbt indians living in fear.
Pass it on.
