GS-II: One year after ‘Navtej Johar’, imagining an equality law.
One year since the SC judgment in Navtej Johar v. Union of India on Sec 377. We have moved from a society where transgender, intersex, lesbian, gay, bisexual and gender non-conforming persons were treated as criminals to constitutional recognition of rights to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Impact of the judgment:
Situations like what we seen in J&K show us that we need an equality law that not only addresses discrimination against individual but also addresses structural forms of discrimination and exclusion.
