Out in Mumbai [electronic resource]: A Victory for India's LGBT Community

Established under British colonial rule, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code criminalized consensual sex between adults of the same gender, declaring it "against the order of nature." On July 2, 2009, the Delhi High Court passed a landmark judgment repealing the antiquated clause, thus fulfilling a basic demand of gay rights activists and bringing closure to a decade-long legal battle. This film follows three members of Mumbai's LGBT community as they make their way through the city and celebrate the first anniversary of the historic verdict. Through their widely varied personal stories, the documentary explores the reality of living a queer identity in today's India - a struggle between tradition and change, and a journey towards true equality.
