First Indian Gay Pride March in New Delhi

As per this. This is great news for the gays of India who not only have been persecuted for very long, but actually have some very harsh laws against them.

A quick search for Section 377 leads to links of laws in Singapore and India pertaining to gay legislation. The reason the code is the same is because it has been inherited from a common British law. So, if it is such an old law, it is time it is reviewed.

But with Eve Teasing being such a prevalent issue in India, the society taking gays as natural is probably still a long way off. But with this news of Gay March going off peacefully, there is hope.
