Chetan Bhagat says scrap Sec 377, but asks gays not to freak people out

Chetan Bhagat did not have to stand up for gays. Section 377 is not in the headlines. Bhagats latest novel Half Girlfriend is not short of publicity. Or front-page ads. So there is nothing opportunistic about his op-ed against Section 377, first very importantly in Hindi for the Bhaskar and then in English for The Times of India. #LGBT #Chetan Bhagat #Women #Flipkart #Section 377 #Stalking #Chetan Bhagat's Half Girlfriend #Chetan Bhagat's new Book #Chetan Bhagat on LGBT

Will Nepal follow India's footsteps and re-criminalise homosexuality?

Following Narendra Modi's visit to Nepal, it has become clear that the country wants to strengthen ties with India.

It is not the anti-gay laws alone, we need to fight for, it is for people who suffer on a day to day basis and lock themselves in this prison of society. #Gay #Homosexuality #LetterstoFP #Indian Penal Code #Section 377

India Today's Vikram Seth cover will help people break out of the closet

It is important that while we criticize the queer movement, we also engage with it. This is the time when various movements could come together and make their voices heard against 377 instead of hiding behind their own moral prudishness. #Supreme Court #LetterstoFP #Vikram Seth #Homosexuality in India #India Today #SC verdict on Section 377 of IPC
