The Delhi Queer Pride was held on Nov 27th and attended by thousands of people, both LGBTQIA and their allies. The march began from Barakhamba Road, led by a huge rainbow arch of balloons
People walked under a huge rainbow flag.
And danced to the beats of Dhol

While this man from Canada had some really cool moves to show with the ring
Some put on their make up at the venue
And others came dressed in rainbow colours
Pammy Aunty was the inspiration for this man
And Cat Woman for this girl
There were quirky beards
And rainbow flags
There has never been a better display of gender fluidity
The nose ring, or nath, was the fashion accesory of choice
But Spicy Tutuboy stole the thunder at the pride
Delhi Pride was not just a celebration, and political demands were kept forward too
And this Trump <3 Modi poster caught a lot of attention
People protested against demonetisation as well
E-rickshaws were made available to make the pride accessible to people with disability
People joined in with their friends
And clicked selfies
And kissed their partner
The march finally ended at Jantar Mantar. The question that remains though is: When will the government hear these voices?
