Indian Supreme Court seeks govt response on including same-sex marriage under Special Marriage Act

Four years after India's Supreme Court scrapped a law criminalising gay sex, it has agreed to hear petitions seeking legal recognition of same-sex marriages, raising hopes of securing another significant right for the country's LGBTQ community.

A two-judge Bench headed by CJI D.Y. Chandrachud transfers to itself petitions regarding same-sex marriages from various High Courts.

The Supreme Court on Friday sought the government’s response to pleas to allow solemnisation of same-sex marriage under the Special Marriage Act.

A Bench of Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice Hima Kohli agreed to hear partners Supriyo @ Supriya Chakraborty and Abhay Dang, who said the non-recognition of same sex marriage amounted to discrimination that struck at the root of dignity and self-fulfillment of LGBTQ+ couples. A separate petition was also filed by Parth Phiroze Mehrotra and Uday Raj Anand.

Pride+ hopes the government of India and the Supreme Court rules in favour of the community and allows for marriage equality across the nations for all genders.
