Activists of Voices against 377 hug as they celebrate the New Delhi High Court ruling decriminalising gay sex outside the High court in New Delhi on July 2, 2009. A top Indian court issued a landmark ruling decriminalising gay sex between consenting adults, overturning colonial-era legislation that outlawed homosexuality. The New Delhi High Court ruled that an existing statute prohibiting homosexual acts was discriminatory and therefore a 'violation of fundamental rights' accorded under the constitution.
