India legalizes homosexuality

by Pablo “Pibe” Ruiz #India twitter@gaiaitalia_eng #LGBT

 

 

It’s been an historic decision. India’s Supreme Court has today ruled that gay sex is no longer a criminal offence. The decision strikes down language in Section 377 of India’s Penal Code, a relic of British colonial rule, that punished “carnal intercourse against the order of nature” with 10 years to life in prison.

The court has ruled today that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a fundamental violation of human rights. “Nobody can be dcriminalized” said the Court “for whom they love”.
