Hope is the rope, that swings through life. When all had given up hope for enforcement of equality and freedom, specially for the LGBT community in India… Shashi Tharoor, MP for Thiruvanthapuram has recently introduced a private member’s bill to scrap section 377. A section of Indian Penal Code that bars the LGBT community from pursuing their choice of sexuality & choosing their own partners.

Shashi Tharoor, MP from Congress wants to enforce a bill to scrap this section from the Indian Penal Code. He broke the news by posting about it on his twitter handle. Since then he has been getting tremendous support on Social Media, including appreciation from the eminent journalist, Barkha Dutt.

Hope this section gets the same zeal from people & our LGBT community who are equal citizens of this country to become a part of this reformation as it happened in Ireland and America in the past one year.

All major countries now believe in equality for all. United Kingdom has already scrapped this section. As a matter of fact, where our laws are based on the laws established by the Britishers. Now let’s wait and hope for the best outcome to come out of this bill.
