6th September, 2018: It’s a day to remember. It will be mentioned in history as another day that a people got their freedom. Their freedom to be, their freedom to love.
I expected this judgement? I don’t know. I have been disappointed before, so I reserved my happiness for when it would be allowed. It was. The five bench judgement marked my smile, my tears. It’s been a long road, longer yet for people who came before me and those who passed before seeing this day. I remember them.
This is a day to remember.
I wish all my fellow, Indian LGBTQ+ brethren a very heartfelt congratulations. We won, because the Supreme Court of India showed every hard-hearted person that love does indeed finally win.
