“The words independence and freedom mean different things to different people. On August 15, 2020, India celebrated its 74th Independence Day. However, the free expression of love and the fact that who you are is still a luxury that only a few can hope for.

The clip captures the essence of queer community, and it urges everyone to celebrate the freedom and “Be You” LGBTQ+ Flags, Colours and Meanings: Here’s A Complete Guide to the Queer Flags and What They Mean.
