Last month (December 2013) India took a huge step backwards on the road to LGBT and gay equality by recriminalising homosexual acts between consulting adults.
Today (Saturday 11 January 2014) I attended a demo in London to protest against India's recriminalisation of gay sex and my two best photos from the protest are above. One was very kindly taken by a Met police officer and the other by Peter Tatchell!
The hashtags to use for the protest were #LGBTIndiaProtest and #repeal377.
A report and more photos from the protest can be found here:
For the first time ever, I actually made my own sign which I am very proud of. It is here:

India Supreme Court recriminalizes homosexuality:
India's gay sex ban "worst event to happen in global gay rights"
In one fell swoop, the Supreme Court ruling on homosexuality has recriminalized the lives of 17.5% of the world's gay population.
