The decriminalisation of homosexuality was a huge step towards equality in India and created a huge impact in the lives of homosexuals who could now be free and finally identify as themselves in public. But did it have a real adverse impact on the lives of homosexual individuals? The decriminalisation of Section 377 may have given homosexuals the right to exist but how has it really impacted homosexual individuals as other laws continue to ignore the LGBTQIA community? This article questions the inclusiveness of other laws that govern the citizens of India but still ignore the LGBTQIA community
