The Supreme Court of India had been hearing testimony since July on a 157-year-old colonial-era law called Section 377, which forbid any sexual activity other than heterosexual sex as being “against the order of nature.”

That law is history now, though, as the five-judge panel on the country’s highest court delivered A UNANIMOUS VERDICT through four concurrent judgments about how Section 377 was arbitrary, and prevented equal rights for those in the LGBT community.

As you might expect, celebrations have erupted all over India — both in the streets, and on social media (below):

Amazing!!

And so great that India finally took the long-overdue step of making this right!!

Such great news today!!!
