Homosexuality is no longer a crime in India.

Yes, that’s the final verdict!

On Thursday afternoon, the SC partially struck down the British-era law which criminalised consensual homosexual sex in India. While reading his judgment on Section 377 of the IPC, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra noted, “I am what I am. So take me as I am. No one can escape from their individuality”. CJI Dipak Misra, Justices RF Nariman, DY Chandrachud, and Indu Malhotra pronounced separate but concurrent judgements.

Here’s a quick look at the outpour of reactions on Twitter!

“Take Me As I Am...”

“We Have to Vanquish Prejudice... and Ensure Equal Rights.”

“Justice Prevails”

“I Finally Feel Accepted in this Country”

“Love Unshackled...”

‘Pride’ And More...
