Homosexuality is a romantic or sexual attraction or sexual behaviour between members of the same sex or gender. though india being a religious country has accepted the non religious communities years ago.\nIn ancient India there was a place for all kinds of diverse cultures, arts and literatures; the society was very assimilative. At one place we have purely and strictly religious painting and sculptors like at Konark or at Jagganath Puri temples and at another place we have monuments like Khajuraho which is famous world over for its erotic arts and sculptors; this also includes sculptors with homosexual activities. \nThis shows that not only all types of sexual orientations were there in ancient past but people were so tolerant and broad minded that paintings and sculptors depicting the same sex love-making were being freely created and displayed.Thus unlike ancient India, people with different sexual choices i. e. homosexuals are not treated equally in today’s society and their basic human rights are violated frequently.\nthe causes of this sexuality mainly include the biological factors and the social and environmental factors .\nthough the indian constitution says that everyone is equal before law and nobody can be discriminated on the basis of their religionor sex , the condition of LGBT communities are not good.\nSection 377 of the IPC says\n“Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.”\nand so they get bullied, molested , sexualy violated , threatened and even murderd\nthe major problems faced by them include marginalization and social exclusion ,homelessness ,barriers to care. \nto improve the conditions of homosexuals be it in any country , we can educate people about them doing workshops so that they get support from their surroundings, we can create oppurtunities for them, train police and other such officials so that the people dont get mistreated \n\n\n\n\n
It is natural tendency that persons of one gender are sexually or emotionally attracted towards persons with opposite gender i. e. males are attracted towards females and vice versa. But sometimes and in some cases this sexual or emotional attraction is not towards opposite sex rather it is towards the same sex persons.
Though India is a deeply religious country but at the same time it is also a country which has accepted non- religious communities as well.
Thus unlike ancient India, people with different sexual choices i. e. homosexuals are not treated equally in today’s society and their basic human rights are violated frequently.
The Constitution treats everyone equally without any discrimination. It is the duty of the State to ensure that no one should be discriminated against.
Marginalization is at the core of exclusion from fulfilling and full social lives at individual, interpersonal and societal levels.
The problems facing LGBT people who are homeless include a lack of housing and services that meet their specific needs.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are more likely to experience intolerance, discrimination, harassment, and the threat of violence due to their sexual orientation, than those that identify themselves as heterosexual. This is due to homophobia.
People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) face particular obstacles, barriers, and challenges that frequently make it difficult for them to find and receive competent and affirming healthcare.
