A significant population in India belongs to the LGBTQ Community which still lacks popular acceptance and equal status like the heterosexual community. The pace of development in this particular area is too slow and at times stagnant. The recent case of Adila V. Police Commissioner of Kerala would probably be the latest such incident. Even as it is a noteworthy judgment, it has done nothing new. This paper analyzed the need for giving adoption rights to persons belonging to LGBTQ Communities by referring to multiple research papers and articles that talked about the same. It was observed that despite the much praised judgment in Navtej Singh Johar V. Union of India not much has been done in this field of law. This community still lacks civil rights. There is also a need for much empirical studies on this too.
