gay rights in India

According to the BBC , India has taken a historical leap forward in terms of the gay rights movement. Although the battle is still long from being won, the abolition anti-gay law in the constitution is a major victory for gay rights activists in the country.

I'm sure that social resistance will continue and that even though homosexuality will still be viewed as a crime, the fact that it can no longer be punished by law is a great start. Change doesn't always come quickly, but it comes nonetheless.
