While it has been a couple of days since the Supreme Court announced it's verdict on Section 377 on September 6, the LGBTQ community still can't seem to get over it. And one among them is Apurva Asrani, the writer of Aligarh and Shahid. Apurva has always been open about his sexuality and his relationship with Siddhant Pillai and on the glorious occasion of the Court's decision, he took to social media to share a heart-warming message for his boyfriend, whom he has been dating for 11 years. "11 years of togetherness. We loved openly even when the law tried to stop us. The only difference now is that we can share our love with the world," he wrote on Facebook. Section 377 Verdict: After Karan Johar's Celebratory Tweet, Twitterati SLAMS Him For Promoting Gay Stereotypes in His Own Movies.
A five-judge Constitutional bench legalised same-sex relations between adults and the quotes from the judges are being reshared over and over again to emphasise on love with dignity. The court, while delivering their decision said, "Consensual sex between adults in a private space, which is not harmful to women or children, cannot be denied as it is a matter of individual choice. Section 377 results in discrimination and is violative of constitutional principles." This decision was met with cheers from many on social media.
