India Celebrates 10th Annual Pride Despite Being Illegal

November 12th marked the 10th Annual New Delhi Pride, where members of the LGBTQIA community, allies and activists came together to show that love is love. In India, gay sex is still illegal punishable with up to 10 years in prison.

But that didn't stop the hundreds who marched regardless of the danger of persecution.

Reigning RuPaul's Drag Race All-Star champion Alaska Thunderfuck was part of the New Delhi Pride festivities, appearing at the popular Kitty Su nightclub.

Check out these videos and images of how India is celebrating pride.

  1. I really get confused with

    I really get confused with these things. Are they fighting for decriminalisation of homosexuality or are more focused on gender expression? Homosexuality and gender expression are too different things but whenever you see these Gay Pride parades it seems like it is all about gender expression and the shock factor; not so much about homosexuality itself.
