About the Webinar
The relationship between India and its South Asian neighbours spans over centuries. These countries have a legacy of intellectual, cultural, religious and linguistic interaction. In recent years the relationship has been marked by close contacts at all levels.
In September 06, 2018, gay sex stands were decriminalised by the Supreme Court of India. Chief Justice Dipak Misra, who headed the five judge bench hearing the case said, “Respect for each others rights is supreme humanity. Criminalising gay sex is irrational and indefensible.”
With this, the draconian and archaic Section 377 of the Indian Penal code will no longer apply to consensual sexual relations among adults in private. Given the close ties, and the social and cultural similarities, can other South Asian Neighbours emulate the Indian movement towards relative freedom, for their local LGBTQ+ minorities?
