Pleas on Validation of same sex marriages to be heard by Supreme Court


Beginning on Tuesday, the Supreme Court will start hearing a number of petitions regarding the acceptance of same-sex unions.Beginning on Tuesday, a five-judge Supreme Court panel will start considering a number of petitions requesting that same-sex unions be permitted in India. This comes after a CJI-led bench last month submitted at least 15 petitions about the topic to a larger bench for an authoritative ruling, describing it as a “very seminal issue.”The hearing will start two days after the Centre characterised the petitions as merely reflecting “urban elitist views” and submitted a new application on Sunday, challenging the petitions’ maintainability. The bench will be made up of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and justices S K Kaul, S Ravindra Bhat, PS Narasimha, and Hima Kohli.

Following the Supreme Court’s decriminalisation of Section 377 of the IPC in 2018, which had previously prohibited sexual acts between people of the same gender that were done “against the order of nature,” there has been an increase in demand for same-sex marriage legalisation in an effort to lessen stigma and discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community as well as a long-term push to normalise homosexuality within society.The petition was backed by the Delhi Commission For Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR), which argued that same-sex families are “normal” and that the government should step in to support them. According to numerous research, same-sex couples can become good parents.The child rights organisation asserted that over 50 nations let same-sex couples to adopt children lawfully.
