Amburi Roy, 37, and Aparna Saha, 36, two lesbian women from the Indian state of West Bengal, fell in love in 2007 while they were enrolled in an engineering college in their home state. With time, their love for one another grew stronger. The two started living together, but only as friends. They couldn’t talk openly about their sexual orientation out of concern for their safety and well-being. The couple told LGBTQ Nation that in the absence of a legal environment for them “to live a life of dignity and freedom” and no recognition of their relationship, they were forced to leave India in October 2021 and solemnize their marriage in Denmark in August 2022. They now work as software developers in Berlin, Germany.
