    hello,
    Buoyed by the response they got last year, the gay community will celebrate its diversity by taking out marches, singing and making speeches in the national capital on July 28.

    'Delhi Queer Pride' will be a public celebration by lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders (LGBT) and intersexed communities, said Arif Jafar, head of Naaz Foundation's Lucknow chapter.

    "This year it will be held on July 28. The entire community can gather as it will be a Sunday," Jafar said.

    "It is our celebration. It is about loving who we are, whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, eunuch or straight, and affirming everyone's right to be respected for their own sexuality and identity. It's a celebration of our diversity and an acknowledgment that this diversity is a gift," he said.
