With happy faces and bodies swaying to drum beats, rainbow revellers took over the heart of Delhi and celebrated ‘pride’ and their newfound independence, two months after the Supreme Court quashed a colonial-era law that criminalised homosexuality. At the 11th edition of Delhi Queer Pride Parade, thousands walked from Barakhamba Road to Tolstoy Marg on the warm Sunday afternoon, spreading cheer and colour. The pride parade was the first one after the Supreme Court decriminalised homosexuality by quashing the draconian Section 377 on September 6. The parade celebrated the identity and sexuality of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies as they walked with a renewed purpose to work towards the goals of a stronger community.
