|(Mostly) Celebrating the|
end of India’s Section 377
In 2010, on the one-year anniversary of the landmark court ruling, a massive celebration was launched in Mumbai, and that celebration is the subject of this documentary. It’s the story of a monumental achievement, told with abundant grace, humor, and fire in the belly, primarily focused on the personal stories of a lesbian, a gay man, and a hijra (transgender person), with footage from the festivities. Strongly recommended, a must-see.
