In this research paper, the researcher has attempted to bring out the condition of the LGBT+ community in Indian society. The researcher has tried to explain that our original Indian culture created by gods never saw homosexuality or third-gender as a disease or sin with the help of texts and tales from religious scriptures and philosophies. India values its culture and many laws are made to preserve such cultures but homophobia isn’t one of them. The true illness is homophobia, not homosexuality. The researcher gave focus on the origin of laws against the LGBT+ community in India, the legal journey from criminalization to the decriminalization of Section 377, problems faced by the LGBT+ community and the measures that can be taken to make this country a better place for them. We can only read, and think about the hell that the LGBT+ community has to go through to survive in this country as a homosexual, asexual, transgender, and all the other individuals. We should change society’s perspective, not a person’s identity or sexual orientation. Science has proved that the people of the LGBT+ community are nothing but normal people just like everybody else, it is high time when society begins to accept that and let them live in peace.
