"We want to be respected in society like a common person," said Kajol Roy, one of the participants.

"As you know about the IPC 377, which was passed on July 2 in 2009 by the Delhi High Court, that verdict is with the Supreme Court, we want to strengthen that movement and gather stakeholders' help for it. Through this (event), we want to declare a big movement," said Alok Choudhury, an organizer.
