2,000 join Delhi Pride


null

Around 2,000 people joined a Pride festival in Delhi, India, this weekend.

The event is the first gay festival since homosexuality was decriminalised last year.

The previous two Pride marches saw activists take to the streets to demand more rights, but this year’s event was more of a celebration of sexuality.

Participants followed a route from Barakhamba Road to Jantar Mantar in central Delhi

One marcher, 18-year-old Pooja, told India Today: “I do not know or care about how social acceptance has changed after the high court verdict. But yes, I have changed. I feel more confident and I know that I am not doing anything wrong since the law of the land does not have a problem with it.”
