It wasn’t just a protest over the country’s reinstatement of an anti-gay sex law that brought hundreds of LGBT and allies to march through the streets of India’s capital, it was a celebration of community as “people danced, sang, and cheered.” The colorful display in New Dehli took place nearly a year since India’s Supreme Court discarded a repeal of a ban on gay sex—effectively reinstating a colonial-era law. According to Reuters: “Participants chanting “Azaadi” (freedom) and shouting slogans such as “I’m gay, that’s OK” carried banners and placards demanding their right to love.”
