Why Queer People Should Stand With JNU

The past week has been full of turmoil in India. But what has been most troubling is the reaction of many queer people who have joined the chorus of lynch mobs. We protest against a colonial law like Section 377 which has been used to harass and blackmail. We must also protest against Sec 124-A (Sedition), another colonial law which was and still is a tool for harassment. Today, we either stand with JNU, or risk our own freedom.
