People assembled at Barakhamba Road in New Delhi, on Sunday, 12 November for the 10th Delhi Queer Pride, an LGBTQ+ Pride march, which takes place every year.
The Quint wasn’t going to miss it!
The Queer Pride parade is a community-funded event, where people with different backgrounds come to show solidarity in the face of shaming, homophobia, transphobia.
According to the event’s Facebook page, Pride demands “anti-discrimination legislation and social accountability for discrimination on the basis of gender, class, caste, religion, ability, race, tribe, sexual orientation, and ethnicity” and the revocation of Section 377 of the IPC among other things.
The parade created a space for members of all communities to express love for each other, without the fear of being judged or being put behind the bars for simply expressing themselves.
Despite the pollution and the coughing participants, the pride was flushed with colour and enthusiasm.
Thousands of people gathered for a unifying cause of love and freedom.
