Over 15,000 people walk together at Mumbai Queer Azadi March 2019

Mumbai saw its tenth Queer Azadi March or Pride Walk on February 2, 2019 and there were more than 15,000 people in attendance. The march began at 3:30 in the afternoon from August Kranti Maidan and went around Grant Road and Girgaum Chowpaty.

Members of the LGBTQIA+ community, their friends and family as well as ordinary citizens who believe in Equal Rights walked shoulder to shoulder in a march the theme of which was inclusivity and intersectionality.

After the Indian Supreme Court decriminalised homosexuality with its landmark September 6, 2018 judgement, the turn out at thiss year’s Pride saw several parents walk with their children. These were not only parents of LGBTQIA persons, but also other parents who wanted to inculcate a culture of gender and sexuality sensitivity and respect among their children.
