Take Me As I Am, Apologies With Clear Heart And Mind: LGBT Legal In India

LGBT history dates back to the first recorded instances of same-sex love and sexuality of ancient civilizations, involving the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) peoples and cultures around the world. The gay rights movement in the United States has seen huge progress in the last century, and especially the last two decades.

In 1924, Henry Gerber, a German immigrant, founded in Chicago the Society for Human Rights, the first documented gay rights organization in the United States. During his U.S. Army service in World War I, Gerber was inspired to create his organization by the Scientific-Humanitarian Committee, a “homosexual emancipation” group in Germany. After a huge struggle, different countries of the world accepted the community by giving them all the legal rights which they deserved. Slowly and after a long struggle, many countries started accepting them as they were but in some countries the fight was still to be continued and one of those countries was India.

India got it’s freedom long back in 1947 but there were few people struggling and juggling for their own independence in this free country. Today is the day when the struggle is given a full stop by declaring LGBT Legal In India. Love is never wrong and to understand it, maybe we have taken much time but as said, “Better late than never.” Take Me As I Am, these five words have so much to explain in terms of felling which may be we always neglected as we ourself were not suffering. Check out the picture which shows the fight of the entire nation and the support of people against the law.

In a historic judgement, the Supreme Court today declared “LGBT Community has same rights as of any ordinary citizen. Respect for each other’s rights and others are supreme humanity. Criminalising gay sex is irrational and indefensible,” said Chief Justice Dipak Misra.
Justice Indu Malhotra says “history owes an apology to members of the LGBT community and their families for ostracisation and persecution they faced because of society’s ignorance that homosexuality is a natural trait.”

Justice Chandrachud said, “decriminalising gay sex is only the first step to bury the Colonial Ghost, adding that time has come to move forward and give the LGBT community the other constitutional rights.”

Check out the pictures how people are now celebrating this freedom with enthusiasm and happiness making faces glow like never before.

Fights are never easy but never giving up and taking all the rights with pride is what the LGBT community has earned after the struggle of years. The entire nation is overwhelmed by this statement. The happiness, joy and the celebration are in the real means, what we see today.
