Homosexuality And Religion: India’s Complex Relationship

by | Dec 6, 2021

Homosexuality is not a new issue, but it is one that has been gaining more and more attention in recent years. This is in part due to the fact that society is becoming increasingly accepting of homosexuality, and people are more comfortable talking about it than they were in the past. However, there is still a lot of debate surrounding homosexuality, particularly when it comes to religion. In some cases, religions condemn homosexual behavior while others embrace it. India falls somewhere in the middle, with various religious groups taking different stances on homosexuality.

There is no easy answer to this complicated issue for Indians who identify as LGBTQ. They often have to reconcile their religious beliefs with sexual orientation or gender identity that may not sit well in those religions, but each person will find what works best on their own through trial and error.

It is important to remember that no matter what religion you are, there will always be people who disagree with your beliefs. Some may say it’s better for someone to stay in their closet or find a way to change themselves so they can conform. Others might want them to keep fighting the good fight and not let others dictate how they live their life. What matters most is figuring out what works best for you as an individual-and remembering that whatever journey you take, there will always be those who support you along the way even if some don’t understand where you’re coming from.
