LGBTQ: Perceptions of Discrimination
While the Supreme Court reviews Section 377, two developments over the last few days seemed to drown the activism of semantics around it and address the core issue of the LGBTQ community. One was the prince of Gujarat, Manavendra Singh Gohil, who opened the doors of his palace hotel to those who choose not to be named but are looking to hone their marketable skills for the job market and the other is the Lalit Group becoming the only hotel chain among the elite list of 32 to endorse the UN’s LGBTQ standards at work; a big leap for the country and the hospitality industry.
