Video- India Scraps Law Criminalizing Homosexuality

The government decriminalising homosexuality only makes the people more hopeful for the Indian youth to finally realise the potential that they have.

By Vishvi Gupta

Almost 2.5 Billion people in India, took a huge sigh of relief as the Indian government, on the Sixth of September decriminalised and scrapped the article that condones homosexuality.

The law was first put in the constitution by the Britishers, under the Buggery Act of 1533 and it has continued to exist even after almost 400 years later. The law dictated and criminalised sexual activities ‘against the order of nature’. While the britishers themselves scrapped the law in early 1980’s, the Indian youth has been haunted by this law.

India has always been a diverse country, and a very gender fluid one. Only with the invasion of outsiders, did it matter who you lay with. India’s fluidity was always seen as a savage and dirty concept.It didnt matter whether you were a man, a woman or a trans. Love, in India always won.

It is still considered a huge win for, not just the youth, but everyone in India, to finally try and ‘normalise’ the homosexual instincts and not struggle on daily basis. The biggest problem that the youth has had to face is not figuring out their sexual orientation but rather the consequences they would hence have to face in the hands of the society and conservative elders.

Anyway, Acceptance is the first step towards the onset of change, and the government decriminalising homosexuality only makes the people more hopeful for the Indian youth to finally realise the potential that they have and take more steps that will make India, the great nation it deserves to be.
