Since time immemorial, rights for the LGBT community in India have been a constant struggle; there have been victories and losses, and the constant trials and tribulations they face are nothing short of remarkable. Section 377 was altered in India in 2018 because it violated India's constitutional morality between consenting adults, but despite how monumental it was for the LGBTQ community, India still has a long way to go to protect the LGBTQ community and their rights; they face challenges across the board from schooling, housing, work, public spaces, marriage, and so on. This article will go into detail about the challenges that the community faces, criticisms of the laws and acts that have been enacted, and recommendations that will help protect the rights of the LGBTQ community.
