India’s top court stops short of legalising same-sex marriage in landmark queer ruling

World (LNW): India’s Supreme Court in a landmark ruling has affirmed the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community, but stopped short of granting legal recognition to same-sex unions, CNN reported.

This decision is seen as a partial triumph for LGBTQIA+ advocates in India who have been pushing for equal rights in the nation.

On Tuesday (17), a panel of five judges, headed by the Chief Justice of India, announced the awaited judgement, with the event being broadcast live by the Supreme Court amid gathering crowds.

Several LGBTQIA+ activists had petitioned against the existing law that prohibits them from entering into legal marriages.

This judgement marks a pivotal moment in the ongoing quest for LGBTQIA+ rights in a society where being homosexual is often stigmatised. India decriminalised same-sex sexual relationships in October 2018.
