LGBT+ community sees outpouring of love at Delhi Queer Pride parade

Joseph McCormick November 12, 2017

Many took to the streets of Delhi for the 10th annual Queer Pride parade today.

An outpouring of love was seen as the celebration started at 2pm and went through to Jantar Mantar.

A statement from the organisers of the Pride parade said: “We march against the oppressive attacks and varied forms of discrimination visited upon hijras, kothis, transwomen, transmen, lesbian, gay, intersex and sexually nonconforming, bisexual, multisexual, pansexual, asexual people and our allies in public and private spaces.”
