Imposed under the British colonial rule in 1860, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code criminalized any sexual acts between consenting adults of the same sex, stigmatizing them as “against the order of nature”. On 2nd July 2009, the Delhi High Court passed a landmark judgment repealing this clause, thus fulfilling the most basic demand of the Indian LGBTQ community, which had been fighting this law for the past 10 years.
Imposed under the British colonial rule in 1860, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code has prohibited sexual intercourse between consenting adults of the same sex. In July 2009, Delhi High Court decides to repeal this clause, and the religious and conservative groups raise their voices in opposition. The increase in the visibility of the queers also expands the anti-gay discourse, and the Indian LGBTQ community says their fight is only now starting. 365 without 377 follows the lives of Beena, Pallav, and Abheena, and invites the audience into the powerful, strong, and active Indian LGBTQ community.
