Will Supreme Court ruling on Section 377 change India’s social attitude?

A study spanning 19 states in 2016 found strong views against homosexuality, but revealed some interesting trends: 61% of the respondents thought love between two men or two women was wrong. Only a fourth of the respondents approved of a relationship between two men or two women.
The youngest respondents (15 to 17 years of age) were more approving of same-sex relationships than people in an older demographic; 31% of people between 15 and 17 said they were alright with two men in love, while only 21% of people between 30 and 34 years of age said they approved of the same.(Shankar Narayan/HT Photo)
