  1. So, the Economist continues its foray into Indiophobia? Didn’t the hatchet
    job that was the article against Narendra Modi hurt enough? Where is
    balanced journalism? Where were discussions with both lawyers and
    politicians in India that are fighting for the rights and causes of LGBT
    people in India? Where was the discussion on the recent progression on
    behalf of Transgendered individuals? Where was the balance to this piece?

    The Economist is London based. Where did this mentality of homophobia come
    from? Who instituted the initial penal code against “buggery”? What nation
    forced this law onto Indians? Better yet, what is it like to be LGBT in any
    country West of India until you reach Europe? What is it like to be LGBT in
    Pakistan? Iran? Iraq? Saudi Arabia? Egypt? Kazakhstan? Russia? Where is the
    reporting on these nations?

    The fact that they loop India in with Uganda shows the intent. Indiophobia
    is alive and well at the Economist. 

  2. I Need to know what is wrong with us..? Why are we still stuck in 18th
    Century, While the entire planet is moving out on this!! ?? Do we actually
    call ourselves the most intelligent specie walking on this earth, calling
    ourselves the largest democracy in the world & not able to let people live
    the way they want..!! I seriously doubt the existence of being HUMAN..

  3. क्या दुनिया के हर कोने में, गले लगा लिया और कुछ देशों में मनाया मौजूद है,
    लेकिन 76 में अवैध है; क्या जनता शर्म की बात है, कारावास, प्रताड़ना के डर से
    छुपा, या यहां तक ​​कि सात देशों में है; यहां तक ​​कि मौत की सजा. क्या लोगों
    को एक दैनिक आधार पर क्रूर हिंसा का सामना क्या करता है, के अलावा परिवारों
    आँसू, लोग दूसरी श्रेणी के नागरिक के रूप में व्यवहार किया जाता है सरल क्या
    विशेषता, हर जगह वे जाना; बच्चों के घरों से बाहर निकाल दिया जाता है क्या,
    तंग और स्कूलों से निष्कासित छात्रों, कार्यकर्ताओं कुछ लोगों को अभी भी
    असामान्य विचार करें कि, पूरे इतिहास में हर देश में मौजूद है क्या, बिना किसी
    चेतावनी के काम से निकाल दिया. जवाब; , ट्रांसजेंडर, समलैंगिक होने समलैंगिक
    जा रहा है, उभयलिंगी. लोगों की दुनिया लाख से अधिक सब सिर्फ वे जो कर रहे हैं

  4. wow, these gay videos really help me to stay on the top of the latest
    global events, thank you so much for showing this single guy from India
    talking about his subjective experience, its very valuable

  5. You can thank the religions of this world for the repressed condition of
    society. The most ignorant of people are religious. I support you in
    being yourselves. Be real, but also be prudent. The challenge you are
    traversing is common in the sense that all humans encounter challenges, and
    those challenges assist us in our spiritual growth. They make us wiser,
    more inclusive, more compassionate.

  6. India’s Culture will never accept homosexuals, tolerate probably, but never
    accept. As it should be

  7. What exists in every corner of the world, embraced and celebrated in some
    countries, but is illegal in 76; What is hidden for fear of public shame,
    imprisonment, torture, or in seven countries even; even the death penalty.
    What tears families apart, what makes people confront brutal violence on a
    daily basis, what simple trait gets people treated as second class
    citizens, everywhere they go; what gets children kicked out of homes,
    students bullied and expelled from schools, workers fired from jobs without
    warning, What has existed in every country throughout history, that some
    people still consider abnormal. The answer; being gay, being lesbian,
    bisexual, transgender. All over the world millions of people face violence
    and discrimination just for being who they are. Every nation is obligated
    by international human rights law, to protect all lesbian, gay, bisexual,
    and transgender, people from torture discrimination and violence. The
    United Nations has one simple message to the millions of LGBT people around
    the world, you are not alone, you, are not alone. LGBT rights are human
    rights, LGBT rights, are human rights. Together we will build a world. We
    will build a world, that is free, and equal.
