This recent ruling by Indian court has overturned the previous Colonial Era Law under section 377, which dictates that Gay Sex is an “Unnatural Offence”. The judgment also overturned on the 2013’s gay sex verdict.

Gay sex is considered as one of the world’s oldest criminal laws. India has been reluctant to overturn it for many years now.

Campaigners in favor of this law outside broke into tears as the ruling was passed down.

Chief Justice Dipak Misra ruled out the statement that, “Criminalization of carnal intercourse is an irrational, arbitrary and unconstitutional act”.


The other judge, Indu Malhotra said that, history owes a big apology to LGBT community for outracising them for so long”.

This law as initially struck down by Delhi Court in 2009, however Supreme Court reinstated this law back in 2013 after the upheaval created by it on political, social and religious levels. The ruling was reinstated previously under the restoration petitioned by multiple groups.

In 2016, court decided to revisit this case ruling after a Curative Petition presented by LGBT campaigners which stated that it was a miscarriage of justice.

Many of India’s largest cities are in favor for this new ruling but there still remains a strong opposition from religious groups and people from rural communities.

In the end, this is the final say by the top court of law in India and it can no longer be challenged by anyone. This tuned out to be a great victory of LGBT community of India in the end.  A company who sells different kinds of sex toys all over the world called lovegasm commented that this has been a bold move from the supreme court and Indians should have the freedom to do whatever they want with regards to sexual freedom and this includes having homosexual sex and the usage of such toys.
