Homosexuals have always been oppressed and bullied by most close-minded people and in India, the case is no different. Many homosexuals are being shunned by their parents and social isolation is very rampant. They are also vulnerable to both police abuse and sexual assault, and them having limited legal recourse is not a great help either.
So the declaration of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code is unconstitutional is revolutionary for the homosexuals living in India. Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code imposes a fine, 10 years' imprisonment or a life sentence on sex between men. A lot of Indian homosexuals were overjoyed by this. The first 5 Indian homosexuals that stood up and question Section 377 are now being dubbed as "famous and fearless 5". Pride parades are being held in different cities. Many parents have come out and supported their children openly. Gay people dating is slowly being accepted as normal. Because of this, gay dating sites are now getting popular and is used by gay Indians to chat and meet someone that they can hang out with or spend the rest of their life with. There are also dating apps made especially for Indians that are now on the web, this allows Indian users to meet other people nearer to them.
