A majority supports gay marriage in India

More than half of India’s population are in favour of same-sex marriage, according to a new study carried out by the Pew Research Center.

Approximately 53 per cent said they either ‘somewhat favour’ or ‘strongly favour’ same-sex marriage.

Support was higher among those who selected ‘strongly favour’ compared with those who chose ‘somewhat support’ at a rate of 28 per cent to 25 per cent, respectively.

The legalisation of same-sex marriage is currently a contentious issue in India, with the country’s Supreme Court looking into whether or not to bring about marriage equality.

Gay sex was decriminalised in 2018, bringing an end to a historic law introduced during Britain’s colonial rule.

It's time India!!!
