PHOTOS: Mumbai Pride Parade Is Heartwarming!

While majority of India’s  politicians continue to stand firm behind the archaic Section 377, 14,500+ people took to the streets in Mumbai in support of the LGBTQ community. It was the city’s biggest pride march yet with people from all walks of society in attendance.

The Pride Walk ’17 was organised by Queer Azaadi Mumbai with everyone decked up to their flamboyant best. It was one of the most magnificent displays of progressive thought this nation had ever seen.

Here are some of the most splendid pictures from the grand event:

Never let society tell you to act a certain way or dress a certain way or live a certain way. It’s your life. Live free.
