Lawyers That Litigated The Section 377 Case


Katju and Guruswamy are Indian public-interest lawyers, renowned for litigating the 2018 Supreme Court case that struck down elements of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, thereby decriminalising homosexual sex in India.  The case was a watershed for LGBTQ+  rights in India, and has been celebrated domestically and internationally as a victory for human rights.  As well litigating the case together, they are also a couple, and were featured in TIME's 100 Most Influential People 2019
