Four gay couples have asked India’s Supreme Court to recognize same-sex marriages, setting the stage for a legal face-off with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, which has previously refused to legalize such marriages. In a historic verdict in 2018, India’s top court decriminalized homosexuality. Despite the 2018 ruling, the community faces a lack of acceptance and discrimination. While the LGBTQ+ community of India gets stronger, the government will have to pass laws accepting the community sooner or later. Proactive steps taken in favor of the community will help the government win the hearts of LGBTQ+ people and allies. Many of this population are young Indian voters.
