A lesbian couple in India committed suicide on Monday by jumping into a local river. The two women left notes saying the world wouldn’t accept their relationship. A three year old child, belonging to one of the women, was also killed, according to local media reports. The two women, 30-year old Asha Thakor and 28-year old Bhavna Thakor, lived in the western state of Gujarat. Their deaths have highlighted the stigma surrounding LGBT people in India.
