There are many day to day challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ Community in India. Major issues regarding the LGBTQ+ community has not yet been resolved. LGBTQ+ people, as members of a social minority group, are suffering from various forms of socioeconomic and cultural injustice. The lacks of social recognition have an effect on the capacity of LGBTQ+ people to fully access and enjoy their rights as citizens. They are more likely to experience intolerance, discrimination, harassment, and the threat of violence due to their sexual orientation than those that identify themselves as heterosexual. This is due to homophobia (the fear or hatred of homosexuality). Some of the factors that may reinforce homophobia on a larger scale are moral, religious, and political beliefs of a dominant group. 

LGBTQ+ Rights struggle to find universal acceptance, In the coming years, the major issues for LGBTQ+ rights on a global scale will be: eradicating persecution based on sexual orientation; protection in the law from hate crimes and hate propaganda; equal rights and privileges (marriage, common-law partnerships, medical-decision making, wills and estates, parenting and adoption) and to work and educate others on homophobia and heterosexism.
