Bindumadhav Khire, president of Samapathikn, told The Times of India that they "organized this rally to mark the 10 years of fight for the rights of homosexuals."
"People laugh at us. Many do not understand our sentiments. This leads to frustration among the people who support homosexuality,” Khire added.
It is only recently that homosexuality was decriminalized, the law passed in July 2009. The things thus advance with this first Gay Pride in Pune.
