At a time when several parts of the country have begun to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) culture and pride, Lucknow is not lagging far behind.
A queer pride parade was held in Uttar Pradesh's capital on Sunday that painted the town rainbow!
Parade-goers marched on with rainbow flags and placards, with messages in support of the LGBTQ community.
"Nawabi queers will crush the patriarchy," said one of the placards.
Another placard read, "All parents should be aware that when they mock or curse queer people, they may be mocking their own child."
Recently, Guwahati also held its own queer pride parade.
Meanwhile, metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, and Kolkata have been holding pride parades for quite a long time now.
