Section 377 UPSC NOTE

 Sec 377 of IPC

  • Section 377 of the IPC was a law that criminalized sexual acts "against the order of nature". 

  • This was interpreted to include homosexual acts, as well as other non-heterosexual and non-coital acts. 

  • The law was enacted by the British colonial government in 1860, and was retained by the Indian government after independence.

  • Section 377 was used to prosecute and harass LGBTQ people for decades. 

  • In 2018, the SC of India ruled that Section 377 was unconstitutional.

  • The Court held that the law violated the fundamental rights of LGBTQ people to equality, privacy, and dignity.

  • The Supreme Court's ruling was a landmark victory for LGBTQ rights in India. 

  • It decriminalized homosexuality and paved the way for greater equality and acceptance for LGBTQ people.

  • It is also important to note that the Supreme Court's ruling does not specifically address the rights of transgender people.
