Bangalore Pride Parade 2013

It’s raining rainbows (mostly umbrellas), if not men, at the Bangalore Pride Parade 2013! A fabulous friend of mine (who happens to be also a traveler) has recently attended the event and he got nothing to say but optimism and pride to demand equal rights for all LGBT communities in India. Escorted by some police officers, the parade went well, sharing the congested street with pubic transports of all sorts.

Homosexuality in India was decriminalized in July 2009 but discrimination is still prevalent around the country. What’s interesting to know is that transgenders were granted with voting rights in 1994 under “third sex” gender assignment — but such doesn’t spell equality for the LGBT.

There are rainbows everywhere!
