Update : India's first gay club

Here's an article I read today morning on the CNN-IBN webpage about India's first gay club that has been officialy registered in Chennai.

Awareness is the only cure for the parochialism that plagues our society. Just as people have learnt to accept other religions and ethnicities, I can only hope that they too will come to accept the differences that exist globally in sexual orientation. Just as the Blank Noise Project is trying to get women to speak out about their harrowing experiences and is attempting to create outrage among us all (for unfortunately that is the only way people take notice) there needs to be more outrage/awareness on the issues that plague the homosexual community in India. It is only when the general masses stop shunning them and accept the difference, that we can finally put an end to their harrasment.

Hadn't caught this bit of news...this is really great to hear...and you're absolutely right, awareness is the best way to fight prejudice and injustice...its wonderful that people are taking action and trying to make a difference and trying to change an unjust and unfair law.
