India Goes Backwards & Makes It A Crime To Be Gay As Their Supreme Court Restores an 1861 Anti-Gay Law

As reported in the NY Times, this Wednesday India stepped back in time. WAY back, in reinstating the country's anti-gay law.

Anjali Gopalan, founder of a charity that sued to overturn the 1861 law, said she was shocked by the ruling.

“This is taking many, many steps back,” Ms. Gopalan said. “The Supreme Court has not just let down the L.G.B.T. community, but the Constitution of India.”

You can protest this criminalization of the LGBTQ community in India by adding your name to the petition here at All Out. It reads:

"We stand together in strength and hope, people from every nation, with India’s lesbian, gay, bi and trans community. In the end, love always wins."
Fight on to make our world a better place for us all,
