It may be the 73rd year of Independence Day for India, but for the LGBTQ community in India, it's the "first real Independence Day".

The Humsafar Trust, founded in 1994, released a video to mark the special occasion.

On September 6th, 2018 the Supreme Court repealed Section 377, finally decriminalising homosexuality and in turn giving freedom to millions. "We are all united by love - for our country and our people," wrote Humsafar Trust.

Filmmaker Apurva Asrani, who also features in the video, tweeted it with these words.

The video features activists, filmmakers, writers, and entreprenuers. It ends with the words #StandWithPride, in tri-colour hues.  "I was to stand shoulder to shoulder with change-makers who had lived their lives openly, with dignity and with courage," Apurva said in an interview. Meanwhile, netizens are already showing love for the heart-warming video.
