Somewhere Over The Rainbow

So they finally decriminalized homosexuality in India last year. Not that much has changed since. Gay men continue to marry women and have children to please their parents. Mothers still insist that their daughters' lovers are "just very close girl friends." Couples entry at nightclubs still means straights only. Gay characters in Indian movies are still over the top freaks cast merely for comic relief. LGBT events are still strictly by guest list only. And people say this is a landmark ruling that could usher in an era of greater freedom for gay men and lesbians in India. Absolutely fabulous, isn't it?
