It’s been six months since the Delhi High Court decriminalised homosexuality and the city’s gay couples have the perfect occasion to celebrate all over again — Valentine’s Day this Sunday.

The party circuit’s buzzing and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) communities plan to paint the town pink.

“The Valentine’s Day party at Polka - The Club in Kailash Colony will be grand,” said Manish Sharma of ‘BoyZone’, one such community. “There’ll be interesting cocktails and a video jockey and disc jockey to up the mood.”

‘Queer Delhi’ is organising a theme party with a red and blue dress code at The Jazz Lounge in Ai, Saket. “The idea is to have a romantic nightout with friends without making it a commercial bash,” said Mohnish Malhotra, a member.

Those not in the mood for loud partying have planned quiet gatherings. “Twenty of us will head to a friend’s
farmhouse in Chattarpur for a barbeque bash. Wine, kebabs, music — can’t get more romantic,” said Sushma Minocha, an MBA student.

Lifestyle brands are adding to the festivities. Gift-shop chain Archies has introduced cards for homosexuals.
