It’s the year 2017 and one might think that our Nation has already legalized homosexuality in our country. Well if you are still in the dark about this. No, it is illegal in India, it’s, in fact, a criminal offense. And I believe that it is time to make it legal. To be honest, this is not even something new, there is evidence that homosexuality has been seen in people who lived during the stone age.
Most of the developed Nations have legalized the same and it’s about time “India” world’s second fastest growing economy start to look into this matter seriously. For crying out loud, they are not even allowed to adopt a child (except for 2 states Kerala and Tamil Nadu, where the transgender community are given a couple of rights).
The time for change is near, almost every political parties in India except a few have shown their support towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual communities and activists across our nation are trying tenaciously to legalize the same.

I hope that they will get their rights soon and would really appreciate if others would also spread the message and make people aware of the matter. Social media can be a really powerful weapon guys.
