INDIA: You have to come prepared to India, a country full of contrasts and constant surprises, a melting pot of cultural heritage and religious influences in a developing modern society of over 1.2 billion people.
On February 2nd, 2019 over 15.000 people joined the Mumbai Gay Pride to celebrate the freedom of homosexuality. It was the first time after India’s Supreme Court decriminalized Section 377 in September 2018, a colonial law that declared gay sex to be illegal. The parade that started from Mumbai’s August Kranti Maidan – where Mahatma Gandhi began the Quit India Movement against the British occupation in 1942 – included 27 events to raise awareness for the LGBTQ+ community and educate people about it. We selected some of the most colorful and powerful pics of the gay pride event in India sharing the love and success of the openly queer event Mumbai Pride 2019 on Couple of Men.
