Section 377 is Repealed. What next?
Congratulations to the gay community of India. Section 377 has been repealed and with this being gay or consensual gay *** is no longer a crime.
However it will still take time for acceptance by the society. So what should be the next step for the community?

The community needs the following services from providers:
1) Safe places to indulge in passion without being discriminated..
2) LGBT friendly saloons and spas.. Following services needed :
a) Shaving/waxing pubic hair and Anus for LGBT community people..
b) Enema and prostrate massage to get the right kind of cleaning done before a date/***.
C) LGBT friendly doctors that provide right advise without prejudice...
d) LGBT activists that create safevsex awareness amongst commercial *** workers, masses, escorts and shemales...
3) We also need a few presidences..
Like a first public gay marriage..

We had a panel discussion of to topic in KPMG, Bangalore yesterday. The RBS(Bank) started working on insurance for partners (health and life) already. Even before sep 6th verdict. Now they planned to replace the word spouse with partner in their system and provide equal rights. Even we started talks with our HR in my company. Let's see how it goes. I wish we do get equal rights as like straight couple

@amorous - arent u asking too much ??
Priority should be no shaming on anyone cause of their orientation.
Friendly place for few service u mentioned be nice , but i like to see media people coming out (another, spoke person, personalities from YouTubers to anyone spreading msg that its okey to be whatever).
Like dowry, a beautiful ritual which became poison to society cause of greed, Even though it sometime happens behind doors we all are awoke to know it's a bad practice. We gotta do same for lgbtq, it might be hard do to stop shaming over all but if our news and media support lgbtq regularly it will become easy .
Like in other countries there are so many actors, actors lgbtq character in movie or in tv show, or novel to cmoic characters who potrait lgbtq ,that it became hard to shame lgbtq and without looking like stupid hateful person.

If *** Education is part of the Curriculum .. Topic on the LGBT should be added to it . Because at least in future we may get More liberal society..
More movie and Serials from Mainstream actors from both the gender to take part and act in LGBT Character in that like western world so that we are widely get accepted.
I know I am asking too much .. But I want at least future kids should not feel guilty because of their double life..

Prostitution must be ligal

Prostitution is not illegal in India.

Actually India has a very peculiar and kinda vague law about prostitution. It says that a woman (there is no mention of gigolos anywhere) can use her body for sexual purpose in exchange of material benefits from her client. But organized prostitution (like brothel, pimping etc) are illegal. The legal form of prostitution is also forbidden within 200 yards (~182 meters) of a public place, thereby forbidding things like escort service in hotel or home.
In practice, somehow, nobody tries to arrest the prostitutes from the designated red light areas like Sonagachi, Kamathipura, G B Road etc though they are also illegal. So in practice, prostituion is going on in India just like the gay scene before repealing of 377. Everybody knows it's there by nobody tries to go against it unless there is some problem or someone wishes to extort some money out of the situation.
So it's quite important to legalize prostitution actually. It'll give them some fundamental rights about what they are doing. And though this point is debatable, but I hope that it'll help to lessen the number of rapes to some extent.
P.S. - please don't get offended thinking that I tried to compare gays and prostitutes. I just compared the situations.

@coolbisu - i didn't understand this part of your comment:
"The legal form of prostitution is also forbidden within 200 yards (~182 meters) of a public place, thereby forbidding things like escort service in hotel or home."
How is this practically possible? If home is categorised as a public place too, it basically leaves you with no place at all where it's allowed.

Also, prostitution is legal in India anyway, so the question of legalising it wouldn't arise.

I am curious to know whether gay prostitution also exists in india? I mean areas like Sonagachi, and other red light areas is male prostitution prevails?

Ha ha ha
Such a wishful thinking...
Even if a place like Sonagachi or so exist for Male Prostitutes, I doubt upon quality of those guys.
First of all, male prostitution is not an ancient thing for Indian culture.
Besides that, the so called proper male prostitutes I have seen so far, I have found them bottom mostly.
Those so called gigolos from Delhi, who are muscular gym built guys, are mostly just showpieces... Rarely useful for bots.

The society I live in is completely straight, following culture and don't believe in being gay is normal. They think it's a disease ☹️.
The society I work with, educated , working all around places have huge respect towards LGBT community. Basically they don't care about your preference ,they look at your talent and work, your skills.
Even 377 is repealed , it's very difficult for Us to change their mentality. Few of them have Gay-lesbo daughters. still some of them accept change and others not.
What we should teach them is "Start accepting people the way they are, not the way you want".
