INDIA-GAY-RIGHTS

Indian transgenders attend a seminar for the transgender community in Mumbai on October 3, 2013. For India's gay community, the joy that greeted year 2009 court ruling legalising gay sex is tempered by the fact that, although the law now accepts them, society still does not. For all the celebrations and talk of an historic milestone, many believe it will take more than a court decision to change public attitudes toward homosexuality, which is largely taboo in India and considered by many to be a mental illness.
