Bollywood Stars Pledge Support for Repealing India’s Anti-Gay Law

07/31/2018 | Gay Star News

As India’s apex court prepares to a rule on the constitutionality of the country’s anti-gay law, Bollywood stars are coming out in support of repeal and more LGBT equality in the country. Actors Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar are the latest in a growing number of celebrities who have publicly backed the push to repeal Section 377, reported The Times of India on Monday. This comes as the country waits for the Supreme Court’s verdict on constitutional challenges to Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises gay sex. If the court finds the law unconstitutional, it would effectively decriminalise gay sex in India, removing a large obstacle to progress on LGBT rights.
