Tapan Ghosh’s Stand on Gay Sex Vindicated by Supreme Court Judgement

Writer, thinker and filmmaker Tapan Ghosh’s stand on gay sex not being a crime has been vindicated by the historic judgment of the Supreme Court. The highest court of the land has ruled that sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it.

Tapan Ghosh’s progressive and liberal views on a number of issues have always been in tune with changing times and social mores. This reflects in his writings too. In his story revolving around the protagonists Shom and Raima currently being posted on his website http://tapanghosh.com/ and other social media platforms in a weekly episode form, no fewer than four characters display tendencies that would have hitherto been considered criminal from a legal standpoint. These include the bisexual Raima, the lesbian Natasha, the gay Shamiq and the transgender Aneesha.

The five-judge Constitution bench was unanimous in its decision; proof enough that when it comes to personal freedom, India must march in step with the world. Tapan Ghosh congratulates the LBGT community for this hard-won freedom which renders void Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code – a 157-year old anachronism from the colonial era.
