The Liberation of Indian Gay People

Another Huge Step Toward Liberation: The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

India legalizes gay sex. I think that liberates more gay men and women in one fell swoop than ever before in human history. It's not equality, of course. And homophobia is still rife. But it's a big, big deal if you care about human rights and human dignity.

It's worth reading the online versions of the Times of India, and the Pakistani English daily Dawn, and reading the comments, to realise that this legal change may be challenged by legislators.
