    Great news. It isn’t long since the Supreme Court in New Delhi struck down the old colonial laws and India is showing it’s willingness to join the club of forward thinking nations.
    We were all shocked to hear of the rape case that made headlines round the world and hope that this tragic event would galvanise India into addressing womens’ issues as well as LGBT ones.

    It’s a beginning—go further, go further with strength and power. This may take time, but in India there is an awareness about sexual “differences” deeply rooted in culture and society ! Good Luck !

  3. Bless you India and good luck. Shanti, shanti.

    It’s about time so good news this is getting the profile it deserves.

    Here’s hoping this gets acted on not mere talking though and we can welcome into the progressive world.

  5. Well done India , lead the way…

    1. While Russia starts to go backwards. How embarrassing for intelligent Russians.

  6. I just came back from a two week Holiday in India to attend my sisters wedding. I learnt so much about India. It’s a land sadly strangled by poverty and open corruption. However it’s also a place of such love, warmth and openess. I definitely think within a generation we’ll witness much more open tolerance towards sexual minorities in Indian Society.

  7. Actions speak louder than words but it’s a very encouraging start.

  8. Great news.But considering India
    has the largest Muslim population
    after Indonesia and Pakistan,I wonder
    how will the government go about
    trying to legislate this,The Muslim
    population has considerable influence
    on Indian policy.

  9. The Indian Govt. says that, but I will see if it will actually happen.
    Don’t hold your breath, I’m sure some right winger party is going to say something. Then a ”guru” will say something about it too.

    The problem is that there is still corruption, superstition and ignorance even in the high places. So I won’t jump for joy until I know for sure that this new law is passed and makes a difference.
