On Sunday, November 25, gay rights activists gathered for the Fifth Delhi Queer Pride parade in New Delhi. The small group, which dropped in numbers from previous years, marched through the city in efforts to eliminate taboos associated with the country’s deeply conservative society.

Just three years after India’s courts decriminalized gay sex, the LGBT community is still fighting for equal legal, social, and medical rights.
