A year ago when the Section 377 verdict was imminent, I had asked a friend how he felt right before the judgment, whether he was nervous, or excited or hopeful. "I'm terrified," he had replied. "If it isn't struck down, it would be a backward step. It'd mean my identity was criminal. My decision to love someone was a criminal act."
A year later, I asked him if he felt anything had changed. Sitting in a far-away land, he responded with, "How much does a law really change, after all?"
