The Delhi Queer Pride Parade 2015 that was held on 29th October, the past Sunday, was the 8th annual pride parade held at the national capital. The energy during the pride parade was at a new high. People are all dolled up, there are colors all around, eye candies at every inch square, and a platform to let it all loose and be who you wish to be, without facing any judgement by anyone. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that!
The Delhi High Court 2009 judgement to decriminalize homosexuality was seen as a milestone in terms of acceptance in the country. So much happiness, so much joy just flew in with that judgement. It finally meant that the LGBTQIA community didn't have to use an alternate identity to be accepted. But all of that was bought back to square one when the Supreme Court of India reverted back the judgement in 2013. It was indeed a sad day.
But things have improved since then. Only yesterday did the finance minister of the country, Mr. Arun Jaitley, Mr. Shashi Tharoor, and several others expressed the need to review the Supreme Court judgement. The pride parades are now being religiously held at all the major cities in the country. The increase in the social acceptance about the alternate sexualities has been heart warming, and nonetheless has been inspiring people to jump out of the closet at proud individuals. Pride parades are the most energetic and positive place to be in, and in view of the Delhi Pride Parade that was held yesterday, let's see why all of us must attend the pride at least once, as a member of the community, or as a supporter. A pride parade will make you realize that you don't live your life to the fullest!

Colors are everywhere. Seriously, everywhere.
Want to dress up? Or maybe dress down? Or maybe let you inner Gaga out? Well you can!
Gender and sexuality is perhaps one of the topics that we all don't know enough about. Pride Parade is just the correct place for you to learn!
People at the parade are HOT! Like, every where you look, you would end up spotting someone you'd wanna drool over.
Just if you are a passerby to the parade, you will realize you are not living your life to the complete potential!
The creativity that people have will leave you speechless!
For decades and centuries the LGBTQIA community has been repressed. We don't ask for reservations, we ask for basic human rights.
Yes, it's a huge crowd. And yes if you lose your friend, its a headache to find them. But, that helps you meet new, interesting people!
You cant even begin to imagine the things you'll see and appreciate at the parade.
The parade never fails to inspire you. It's like a shot of motivation with a drizzle of amazingness.
There is so much fun stuff happening around you, that everywhere you look will just capture your attention!
Well, who doesn't want to spend some time with a happy pug!
