Meet Vyshnav! At age 12 his schoolmates bullied him because they thought he was gay. Today, at age 17, he’s speaking up because he doesn’t want other young kids to go through the same thing. His message is simple, timely, and powerful.

Watch Vyshnav’s moving video and share it with your friends and family. Help break down harmful prejudices against LBGTQ individuals.

Section 377 is a colonial-era law that criminalises anything it deems ‘unnatural’ sex. So it can apply to anybody, but it’s most often used to unfairly target LGBTQ communities.

Such an outdated and unjust law has no place in modern India. We believe that the society most of us want is just and inclusive, and that’s how our laws need to be too.

Yet we know that our laws won’t evolve unless we change the conversation around LGBTQ rights in India. The right to equal treatment under the law (regardless of sexual orientation) is a basic human right.
