The ‘Queer Azaadi Mumbai Pride 2019’ witnessed the participation of over 15,000 supporters and members of the queer community. Interestingly, August Kranti Maidan is the place where Mahatma Gandhi began Quit India Movement against Britishers in 1942.
The participants were seen in an electric mood — waving flags, shouting slogans and walking in unison to celebrate reading down of Section 377, which was seen as one of the country’s most draconian laws.
The ‘Queer Azaadi Mumbai Pride’ is one of the biggest LGBT events celebrated every year to support the LGBTQIA+ community in India. This was the first gay pride parade after Supreme Court decriminalised homosexuality in September 2018.
