Psychosocial and Educational Problems of LGBTQ Community in India


In a historic judgment, The Supreme Court of India on 6 September 2018 ruled that consensual gay sex in private space is not crime saying that sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it. This judgment is a new dawn for personal liberty for LGBTQ community because in any inclusive society persons cannot be discriminated on the basis of grounds related to their identity. Judges of Apex court said that social morality cannot violate the rights of even one single individual. As this decision was flashed in media, mixed reactions were captured among various sections of the society and new debates emerged on sexuality nationwide because larger part of Indian society was not ready to accept this kind of decision but smaller part of our society believes in right based society and welcomed this shift. Philosophy of inclusion emphasizes that no one should left behind and the role of families becomes decisive in increasing acceptance of LGBTQ community members
