A recent decision by the Indian Supreme Court to review a ruling which re-criminalised gay sex emboldened members of the LGBT community to come out onto the streets.

There has been a long-running dispute in the country over the colonial-era sodomy law Section 377, which bans sex “against the order of nature”.

The law was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2009, only to be restored in 2013, re-criminalising gay sex and dealing a blow to LGBT rights activists.

Activists scored a minor victory this week, as the country’s Supreme Court granted a request to reopen the case.

The court will ask a five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur to issue yet another ruling on whether the law is constitutional.
