Over the centuries, people have tried to define gender and categorize it into a black and white concept—the concept of a man or a woman. But gender had and will always be a fluid concept—subjective to each and every human. The old school stereotypical society has never been able to differentiate between gender and sexuality—an integral part of our identities. And the problem doesn’t lie in not being able to differentiate but in not allowing its generations to differentiate or explore.

The LGBTQIA+ community has managed to change that. LGBTQIA+ which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual has defied every stereotype that the society ever created with the black and white concept. They chose to see the world in grey. But with the law prohibiting it, the choice to define their identities became a doom.

Until in 2018, the Supreme Court of India de-criminalized homosexuality by declaring Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code unconstitutional. This was a big step towards recognizing each human above their already nature-defined sexuality. Moreover, it gave each of us the choice to choose who we wanted to be. But the struggle hasn’t ended yet. The law might have changed but the society hasn’t and it won’t—not in a month, not in a year and not in the next five years. But it certainly transitions into a better place every day. The journey to the endgame is cold and dark, but the light at the end of the tunnel is what had led us to start this struggle, and it is what’s going to keep us striving.
