dispose of Section 377 of The IPC that criminalizes homosexuality
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Reasons why section 377 of the INDIAN PENAL CODE must be deleted :
1) since homosexuality is not a choice, section 377 allows justice to peep through her blindfold, holding the LGBT+ community as unequal in the eyes of the law. The biggest democracy in the world,has failed in giving voice to a minority .
2) the constitution has a bigger jail term for being homosexual(or having "unnatural sex" which is consensual) than for being a rapist(sex regardless of consent).
3) The section of the ipc was repealed by the high Court of Delhi in 2009 which led to a vast number of people coming out of the closet. In 2012 though, homosexuality was recriminalized and these people now face the social stigma of a criminal.
4) this section invades private space.
