It's still a crime to be gay in India. But that could change any day now.
LGBT+ activists have been fighting for years against the country's discriminatory law, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
A remnant of British colonialism, the law states that anyone engaged in same-sex activity can be thrown in jail for life.
The Supreme Court began re-examining Section 377 this week and could make a decision any day now. But the fight for safety and equality won't end there. Years under Section 377 has led to a lot of misinformation and distrust of LGBT+ people in India.
That's why our partners at Jhatkaa.org want to launch a HUGE campaign to change hearts and minds across one of India's biggest cities, New Delhi.
With your help, they'll put giant billboards around the city promoting acceptance of queer people and a helpline. These billboards will be seen by MILLIONS of people.
