I'm not gonna lie, I still rear up when I see things like this. Congratulations India, that is a huge victory! So much people take for granted, I can imagine the celebrations are huge.
The idea that 35 countries within the British Commonwealth are still rattling around in the dark ages is more than a little sad. The other 35 are also. The following is a particularly chilling reality:
Countries that still have a death penalty for homosexual activity:
Mauritania, only applies to Muslim men
Sudan for a third conviction
Nigeria where several northern states have adopted sharia as the law of the land
Qatar applies only to Muslims, for extramarital-sex regardless of the gender of the participants
Somalia( Jubaland) where several southern states have adopted sharia law
There is legal dispute whether the law of the United Arab Emirates allows for the death penalty for homosexuality, however Amnesty International could find no instances of the death penalty.
It's a stunning reality.
