The good news is that more and more sexual minorities are coming out of the closet. They’re identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to an increasingly wider social circle, trusting extended family, colleagues, friends and acquaintances even as India continues to criminalise homosexuality.
STAR SPEAK OUT
|Ricky Martin(who came out as gay in 2010) |
"I am blessed to be who I am. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with."
"[Coming out] gave me the freedom to be who I was for the rest of my life. I don’t have to hide around corners. The worse thing is to be afraid of who you are. It’s horrible." Ellen Page (who came out this January) - "We deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise."
