Journey towards freedom

A screening of the documentary 365 Without 277 depicts the struggles of the LGBT community to gain acceptance in mainstream Indian society and the Constitution

Catch a screening of the documentary 365 Without 377 directed by Adele Tulli from Rome. Imposed under the British colonial rule in 1860, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code criminalised any sexual acts between consenting adults of the same sex, stigmatising them as "against the order of nature".

On July 2, 2009, the Delhi High Court passed a landmark judgment repealing this clause, thus fulfilling the most basic demand of the Indian LGBTQ (lesbians, gays, bi-sexual, transgender and queer community), which had been fighting this law for the past 10 years.

Three characters -- Beena, Pallav and Abheena -- travel through the city of Bombay heading to the celebrations for the first anniversary of the historic verdict. "365 Without 377" is the story of their journey towards freedom!

On September 25, 7 pm to 9 pm
