Sadly, LGBTs can hardly live freely in India. Section 377 of the 1860 Penal Code condemns "carnal intercourse against the order of nature". It is a rough text likely to punish various sexual practice like sodomy, fellation or more generally homosexuality. Depending on the case, imprisonment varies from ten year to a lifetime. Fortunately, there have been positive signs recently and showing a slight improvement. In 2009, the High Court of Delhi finally judged this law as a "violation of fundamental rights" after numerous (unfortunately vain) requests of Indian personalities for its repeal. Since then, it is not longer applicable in Delhi. If you are passing by, for sure you should be discreet.
