On 2nd July, the date on which the Delhi High Court repealed Section 377 of the constitution which pertains to homosexual activities in the country, organizations SCRUFF and Those In Need are organising the First Delhi Bike Pride in the city!
This day is celebrated by the LGBTQ community of India as a day of victory and despite the reinstatement of Section 377 in 2013, we are reminded that equality is possible.
A number of LGBTQ organisations have come forth to support this initiative including Humsafar Trust, TWEET Foundation, Indian Aces, Youth LEAD, India HIV/AIDS Alliance, Adhikaar India, SHEROES, Love Matters, Mastylecare, ED and more. The event aims to bring to light the constitutional shackles the LGBTQ community lives with and the harassment and exploitation they are subjected to as a result of the ruling. However, despite all this - they live their lives with dignity and continue their struggle for equality.
The participants will gather at South Extension II and the march will end at Jantar Mantar, taking the rainbow flag across the city.
