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