About the Organisations

Lex Macula is a registered NGO under the Societies Registration Act, 1861. They are a youth organisation specializing in organizing moot courts, debates, seminars and other legal competitions for a much better learning experience than what is offered to the law students.

The Parley Project is a student-led initiative which focuses on research-driven solutions for global agendas. Started in 2020 the project aims to be a platform where students like us can voice their opinions and hone the understanding of the world around them.

About the Event

Living in a time when webinars are the new normal, they hope to make this a little more accessible bridging the gap between the law and the citizen. Attend this session to see two stalwarts of the LGBTQIA+ movement breakdown what it means to be queer in an Indian beyond the 377 judgement, not just the law but the aspirations of an ordinary queer Indian.

It is time that our whole community becomes a part of the conversation regarding the LGBTQIA+ community and how things have shaped for them since the decriminalisation of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in 2018.

They have a legal luminary in the form of Senior Advocate Mr. Anand Grover, as well as renowned Gay rights activist Mr. Ashok
Row Kavi on the panel so that the participants get an overall perspective on the current situation and what further changes can be implemented for the betterment of the community.

They aim to provoke discussion and raise awareness on this topic, which they hope will also bring some much-needed changes in society.

Keeping this spirit in mind and celebrating the International Pride Month, 2020 they duly invite everyone to attend our webinar on the topic “The Rainbow and the Gavel-Queer Freedom beyond Section 377” on 27th June 2020 at 3:30 PM.

About the Webinar

Mr. Anand Grover is a designated Senior Advocate practicing in the Supreme Court of India and he is also the Director of the HIV/AIDS Unit of the Lawyer’s Collective(India) and the former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health (2008-2014).

Out of the many cases that he has fought, Mr. Grover also argued the very important and landmark case of Naz Foundation v Govt. of NCT of Delhi in which he represented Naz Foundation which, just like him, had been fighting for equal rights of the LGBTQI Community.

Mr. Ashok Row Kavi is the Founder and former Chairman of the Mumbai-based LGBT rights NGO Humsafar Trust, which he founded in 1994. He has also been an ardent journalist and had a career spanning over 18 years.

The first man to publicly come out as gay in India way back in 1984, Mr. Row Kavi was also one of many who had petitioned for the removal of Section 377, which criminalises homosexuality. Mr. Ashok Row Kavi is India’s oldest and most vocal gay rights activist today.
