Decision Maker Response
Supriya Sule’s response
Jul 9, 2019 — Dear citizens,
I truly believe in the Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by United Nations that begins with - ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’. Each individual deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society.
Being a part of the LGBT Community doesn’t make one less human. Queer Rights are human rights and human rights are Queer Rights.
No matter who you are, what your orientation is or what gender you identify as - you deserve to be valued and loved for who you are. I have always called for the country to pledge to include the members of the LGBT community in the mainstream and end discrimination against them.
At this crucial juncture of the vote at the UNHRC, I request Hon'ble Prime Minister of India to vote progressively in support of the LGBT Community as the SOGI resolution comes for vote. The Hon’ble Supreme Court has decriminalised Section 377 and it is now time for India to upheld the LGBT rights.
