Gay Pride Celebrations in Capital to Celebrate First Anniversary

They are different and they are proud of it. Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Trangenders (LGBTs) gathered at Jantar Mantar in the Capital on Friday to celebrate ‘ their’ first anniversary.

It was on this day last year that the Delhi High Court had legalized homosexuality by striking down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.

About 150 gays, lesbians, transsexuals and their heterosexual supporters took to the streets for the annual pride march celebration called the Queer Azadi March on Friday.

While some LGBTs flaunted their love for each other by indulging in public display of affection, others came out in the open albeit behind feather masquerade masks.

Those who had come to lend their support held placards that read ‘ Fun starts here’, ‘ Love knows no gender’, ‘ Better be gay than grumpy’ and ‘ I am the pink sheep of the family’. The organisers of the march had set up a small stage outside Jantar Mantar where participants shared their experiences.

Gay pride celebrations were held in other parts of the country as well, including Mumbai and Bangalore
