Supreme Court of India, on 6th September 2018, finally ruled Section 377 unconstitutional and decriminalised homosexuality. The judgement is expected to give a major boost to LGBTQI people and their struggles. Prior to this, the 2009 Naz judgement of Delhi High Court, which had decriminalised homosexuality, had also led to the society acknowledging about homosexuality and opened the gates of discussion amongst public.
