Delhi hotelier who has moved Supreme Court against Sec 377
After filing a writ petition in the Supreme Court to quash Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises sexual acts “against the order of nature”, following which the Apex Court issued a notice to the Centre seeking its response within a week, hotelier Keshav Suri is hopeful that the battle against the law will end in the LGBTQI community’s favour. He tells us that it’s high time that “privileged, ‘nepotistic’ people” like him stood up for LGBTQI rights, discusses the power of the ‘pink dollar’ and tells us why it was important for him to mention, in his petition, that he has been in a “committed relationship with another adult man for nearly a decade”.
