Thousands turned out for the ninth annual #DelhiQueerPride in India today.

The sun came out and so did a colorful array of people, to witness an event that sends the message to the Government: ‘If some of us aren’t free, no one is.’

Same-sex sexual activity remains illegal in India under section 377, brought in during British colonial rule in 1860.

After a successful repeal of this law in 2009, it was later recriminalized in 2013 and is an issue that affects every LGBTI person in India.

This issue, among others in India were plastered on banners all over the parade today, but the overall message was that love is love.
