Video: Transgenders take to the ramp
On November 27, 2011 members of theLGBT community walked the ramp in Siliguri, West Bengal
Participants from the LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders) community walked the ramp at a fashion show organised in Siliguri on Sunday, November 27, 2011.
Souvik Ghosh who organised the show, said that the community members are looking forward to re-appeal against law under the Section 377 of Indian Penal Code, which was struck down three years ago. In a landmark judgment, the Delhi High Court recently struck down the provision of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalized consensual sexual acts of adults in private, holding that it violated the fundamental right of life and liberty and the right to equality as guaranteed in the Constitution.
