Re: LGBT Rights

In California where I live there is no problem however in India where I was born it is still at a place where the US was in the 80s. AIDS/global changes has forced homosexuality into public discussion but most feel its a moral lifestyle issue.
moby we also had 377 till 2009 (though there were no prosecutions since 1986 i believe) when the High Courts(similar to Federal Circuit Court in US) held to be incompatible with the Indian constitution. The lawsuit is still pending in the Supreme Court but is very unlikely to be overturned.
In my religion (Hinduism) there is no opposition to being gay (there is only one thing mentioned taking a bath after having gay sex which I do follow) but Hindu society has imported homophobia from the 1000 years of Abrahamic rule over India. Plus amongst Hindus what society thinks drives parents motivations more than religion. A son coming out as gay is very shameful.
