5 photos that mark the historic moment India legalized gay sex

In a historic ruling, India’s Supreme Court ruled that homosexuality is no longer a criminal offense.

Yesterday’s unanimous Supreme Court decision went beyond ending the country’s sodomy ban. “Any discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation violates fundamental rights,” wrote Chief Justice Dipak Misra.

One judge on the five-judge panel, Indu Malhotra, said that “history owes an apology” to LGBTQ people.

Across the country, LGBTQ people celebrated.
