British Asians celebrate Indian law change

In September 2018, homosexuality was made legal in India.

Before that, Section 377 of the Indian penal code was in place, a law imposed on Indian citizens during British occupation.

It penalised intercourse “against the order of nature” with a sentence of life imprisonment.

British Asians told BBC News how the repeal of the legislation has impacted them.
