India’s Supreme Court has ruled against allowing same-sex marriage, arguing that it is a matter for the legislature to decide. The court’s decision was met with disappointment by LGBTQ+ activists and their allies, who have been fighting for marriage equality in India for years.
The court’s ruling is a setback for LGBTQ+ rights in India, but it is not the end of the fight for marriage equality. Activists have vowed to continue to push for change through the legislature and the courts. They also hope that the court’s decision will galvanize public support for same-sex marriage.
The ruling is also a reminder of the importance of legal protections for LGBTQ+ people. Without these protections, LGBTQ+ people are at risk of discrimination and violence. The Indian government should take steps to ensure that all LGBTQ+ people are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.sharemore_vert
