Dignity First

11 December 2014.

It is a now a full year after the Supreme Court’s decision to recriminalise the intimate lives of LGBT people and reintroduce Sec 377. The verdict saw an unprecedented mobilisation of our community and our allies, a publicly visible anger at the deep injustice done to us by the very institution we were looking up to, a passionate refusal to accept this verdict, and a strong resolve to fight this out to the very end.

This short video tries to capture all of this, partly as a homage to this energy and solidarity, and partly to remind ourselves that the the struggle is still on. Though there is a long way to go still, this video aims to emphasize that, as a community, we do indeed have what it takes to see it through.
