The term "queer" was originally used as a derogatory slang for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. However, the term has been reclaimed by some members of the LGBTQ community as a symbol of pride and a way to describe the broader spectrum of non-heterosexual and non-cisgender identities.
The LGBTQ community in India still faces widespread discrimination and violence, despite the 2018 supreme court ruling. Activists and allies have been working to raise awareness and push for greater legal protections and social acceptance for the LGBTQ community in India. They have organized rallies, campaigns, and other events to raise awareness about the issues faced by the LGBTQ community, and to advocate for equal rights and recognition. Despite the challenges, the LGBTQ community in India has made significant progress in recent years, and there is growing support for LGBTQ rights among the general public.
