The criminalization of homosexuality in India has been seen as an incontrovertible evidence to determine the brutality of English people against Indians. Notwithstanding the various iniquities of the British rule in India, the English people did not shy away from criminalizing the homosexuality by incorporating Section 377 into the Indian Penal Code -a conventional and controversial section that criminalizes consensual sexual orientation between two adult men as well as women. On September 6th, 2018, the apex court of India has decriminalised homosexuality considering it as Unconstitutional. The court observes that such discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation violates the dignity of individuals.

In the light of the judgment of the Apex Court, the Seminar intends to highlight the various other prospects of the legal validity and constitutional validity of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.
