Queerty is better as a member
If you have to wear a mask, you have no pride!!!
Homosexuality is still culturally taboo and only recently decriminalized in India. There are no anti-deiscrimination protections for sexual orientation in India. Delhi (probably the most gay-friendly city in India) is roughly three times the size of NYC, so a few thousand people is still a small number to publicly show support for LGBT rights. To march at all, mask or not, takes much greater courage there than it does in the west.
Hear hear, @Timmmeeeyyy!
Timmmeeeyyy – you say: “Homosexuality is still culturally taboo and only recently decriminalized in India. ”
Yeah, and you have to fight to change this. And fight hard. Like we had to.
True, we do have it easy now compared to many countries but we’ve had to work fucking hard to get to that position.
Proof that you don’t need corporate sponsors for Pride.
I still say that wearing a mask is no better than being in the closet. I know what it is like to be discriminated against. I am almost 60 years old and came out in 1973 at the age of 20 and saw my share. I was bashed and almost killed but I stood tall as a proud gay man. If these people are proud; show your faces!
Tell me how to move there from Boston…HOT!
