At the New Delhi Queer Pride, 2015, as the party walked from Barakhamba Road to Jantar Mantar, on Sunday, November 30, 2014.

It was my first time at the annual event, and it was also the first gathering of such kind after the Supreme Court dismissed the 2009 Delhi High Court decision reading down the controversial Section 377 of the IPC, thereby effectively banning sex between persons of same sex.

The event was sexy, but sex was not the issue. The issue was comradely support. So there were people from all hues, LGBTQI, and even strait allies, running the number to thousands. To my conservative estimates, there were at least 3,000 people, which I thought, was a big deal.
