Hyderabad has got its own queer parade now! The first ever queer pride parade of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community and their supporters, was organized on Necklace Road.  The LGTB community and its supporters rode cycle rickshaws at the parade.The parade hopes to sensitize people to the harassment, violence and discrimination faced by the community and to demand dignity and equality in a deeply conservative society.





 

'Gay by birth, proud by choice', 'gay couples don't make gay children, straight couples do!' and 'Get one thing straight, we are not!' were the slogans flaunted by many.  More than 2000 people from Hyderabad and other cities took part in the parade, which included groups like Anveshi, Surakasha, Hero's Project and Google.
