Around the World with Jeff Werner

I'm proud to announce that this month I am finally profiling a Frontrunner club outside of Europe and North America. I present you Delhi Frontrunners.

Delhi Half Marathon - Run for a Cause - Run for Queer Rights!

Timeout Delhi October 17-30, 2008, Vol. 2, Issue 15.

Walking with pride, gays in Capital denounce Article 377

It was to be a small step by Delhi’s gay community, but Sunday evening’s Queer Pride, the first in the Capital, soon turned into a march for freedom. Over 450 members of the community — bisexuals, transgenders, gays and lesbians — walked down Tolstoy Marg towards Jantar Mantar screaming out slogans to denounce Article 377 which criminalises homosexuality in India. Similar marches were simultaneously being held in Kolkata and Bengaluru.

Frontrunners: A Sunday sojourn for city’s homosexual community

Being gay or lesbian in Delhi has never been easy. Especially when seen against the relatively open and thriving "Gay Bombay". Because of the criminalisation of homosexuality under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code and the absence of a culture of tolerance, homosexual spaces and communities in Delhi appear to be less obvious and are limited to a select few bars, activist groups, online forums and social networking e-groups.
