Gay Parade: Hundreds march to protest against discrimination
Holding banners and rainbow-coloured flags, around 1,000 people marched from Barakhamba Road to Jantar Mantar on Sunday afternoon.
New Delhi: Hundreds of gays, lesbians and transgenders marched on the streets of the capital on Sunday protesting discrimination against them and demanding their right to live a life of dignity. Holding banners and rainbow-coloured flags, around 1,000 people marched from Barakhamba Road to Jantar Mantar on Sunday afternoon to register their protest against police excesses and forcible marriage by family.
With their faces covered with masks, the participants were seen holding placards that read 'Delhi Pride Festival' and 'Straight but not Narrow'. Foreigners too participated in this fifth edition of the queer pride march held in Delhi.
"The participation this time was greater than the previous years," one of the event's organisers noted. The march comes three years after the Delhi High Court made changes in the law that made gay sex a crime.
