A Long & Hard Battle of a Sri Lankan Activist for Gay Rights

09/08/2018 | Economic Times

Waking up on the morning of September 6, I thought I was facing yet another humdrum day in Colombo. Good news is always so few and far between when it comes to gay rights in our part of the world. Then came the news from India, the blaring headlines, the joy in activists’ voices — this was a moment to cherish, and also a moment to reflect. In scrapping Section 377, India has done at last what should have been done many, many years ago. Better late than never, however. I can’t applaud LGBT activists in India more. Saying congratulations just doesn’t seem to cut it. It just doesn’t seem enough.
