Indian Supreme Court: Protect human rights - repeal the ban on gay sex

    1. Petition by

      Helen Seymour

      United Kingdom

In 2009, the Indian government made a huge step in the direction of protecting human rights by removing the ban on homosexuality.  Four years later, and all those people in India who felt safe to come out will now be forced to hide their sexuality once again, as the ban has been put back in place.  It is deeply saddening, not to mention horrifying, that India has taken this step backwards and we urge the government to reconsider. 

To:
Supreme Court of India
Protect human rights: repeal the ban on gay sex

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I feel that this decision is a retrograde step for such an important and high profile country to take, especially when it is home to the second largest population of gay people in the world. Until common sense prevails I for one will not be welcoming India to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next year.

      No human should feel fit to judge another. Sex is not only one of the building blocks of life, but an expression of love and affection. When we feel fit to deprive any person of these the rest of us can no longer call ourselves "human".
