Boost to LGBT community in fight for rights 24.8.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Describing its earlier verdict re-criminalising gay sex as "unsustainable", the Supreme Court on Thursday gave a big boost to the LGBT community in their fight for their rights. The apex court endorsing privacy as a fundamental right would have a bearing on a number of petitions, including those challenging the law that criminalises gay sex, protecting privacy on social media as well as how one can restrict eating habits among others. Lawyers and activists also feel that this judgement would have an affect on the outcome of petitions challenging the "two-finger test" conducted on rape victims. One of the big takeaways of the judgement is the unambiguous stand taken by the nine-member Constitution Bench on LGBT community that the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) population cannot be construed to be "so-called rights" and that the earlier bench's coinage was "inappropriate". Justice D Y Chandrachud wrote in his judgement: "Sexual orientation is an essential attribute of privacy. ...

Decriminalise homosexuality, penalise marital rape: Activits urge SC after Triple Talaq verdict 22.8.2017 DNA: Top News
As the Supreme Court on Tuesday banned instant triple talaq, activists urged the apex court to also take steps to decriminalise homosexuality and penalise marital rape. The triple talaaq verdict should open people's minds to more progressive laws, gay rights activist Harish Iyer said. "Any step in the direction of liberty for the most marginalised should be seen as a wave that all allied causes could ride on. The verdict should open our minds to more progressive laws, including on Section 377," Iyer said. While the issue of Section 377 of the IPC, which criminalises homosexuality, is pending before the top court, it has been reluctant to make marital rape a criminal offence. "SC rightly held instant triple talaq unconstitutional, didn't pass the buck to Parliament. Isn't it a shame SC didn't do the same on Section 377 (of the Indian Penal Code)," tweeted Kavita Krishnan, Secretary of the All India Progressive Women's Association. "Dear SC, after this will you please hold marital rape, including of minor ...
