India’s Supreme Court on Monday said a five-judge bench will start hearing final arguments over granting legal recognition to same-sex marriages on April 18, proceedings of which will be live-streamed on its website and Youtube. The case is being seen as a milestone event for LGBT rights in the country. India’s top court decriminalised homosexuality in 2018 by scrapping a colonial-era ban on gay sex. But the government said it opposes recognising same-sex marriage and urged the Supreme Court to reject challenges to the current legal framework lodged by LGBT couples.
