LGBTQs hold pride march in SoBo

Mumbai: Over 250 members of the LGBTQ community Saturday held a “pride march” from August Kranti Maidan to Opera House and back, in south Mumbai, to highlight issues facing them. Such pride marches have been held by the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Trans-Queer community in different parts of the country since 2005, organisers said. While the earlier demand was the decriminalisation of section 377 of the IPC, current demands include inclusion in workplace, education, marriage, adoption rights, protection against abuse and discrimination, they said.
