Delhi: Communities of Belonging

By Sunil Gupta & Charan Singh

“Between 2009 and 2013, there were many of us coming out to our families and society. We were beginning to lead our lives the way we wanted. But now we are back where we were. Now we fear the law and the police again because now everybody knows what Section 377 is and how it implicates us and on whom it casts suspicion.”—Jatin
