BY Web Intern in General

Today, only a few days after India's second Gay Pride Parade ever, their parliament overturned legislation that criminalizes consensual homosexual sex. Previously, one could get up to 10 years in prison if caught in the act (and that's longer than most rape or murder sentences).
