29th June 2008, was an important day in their lives, they claim. Yes, For the first time this year Bengaluru and Delhi are joining Kolkata in marching to celebrate “Pride” in India.

This was a chance for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, hijra, kothi, transsexual, transgender, doubledecker and intersex communities to celebrate being part of this country and to protest how the government of this country continues to treat sexual minorities as criminals. This was also a chance for friends, families and supporters to come out on the streets in support of these communities, and in doing so, connecting with the origins of Pride Marches which take place around the world at this time of the year.
