She kissed her
He kissed him
The world didn't end

India has a rich history of sexual fluidity that repulsed her British Colonisers. So much so, they introduced a law criminalising sexual activities against the "order of nature". To the prudish Brits, that included "homosexual acts".
For 157 years, this law remained in place.
Until yesterday. On the 6th September 2018, the Indian Supreme Court opened up the next chapter in the journey for equality in the LGBTQ community by abolishing Section 377.
In celebration of this achievement, and in recognition of the struggles of the activists who have fought so long and hard for this, here's a t-shirt of a poem written by our community in support of Gay Rights.
In short, the world won't end because of Gay Rights, and now people in India can be free to love whoever they want to fall in love with, without fear of being branded a criminal.
However, this is just the start. There are still lots of battles to be fought to improve the lives for LGBTQ communities around the world: just because it's legalised, doesn't mean people still won't face harassment and hate
For this reason, 20% of the proceeds will be donated to groups supporting the rights of the LGBTQ Community.
And while the rest of the world is building walls, let's celebrate Making India Great Again by Making India Gay Again :)
