7 October 2013 Last updated at 16:24 BST

India's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community held its first ever gay pride parade in the western state of Gujarat.

Organisers hope the event - which coincided with the launch of the global UN campaign "Free and Equal" in support of equality for the LGBT - will help make people more tolerant and accepting of the area's LGBT community.
