    Abstract:
    "Sexual orientation and gender identity are the essential aspects of human beings and should not at any time lead to discrimination or abuse" as stated by the United Nations. The LGBTQIA+ communities have lived through many struggles at different stages and at different times. For many years in India, homosexuality and its hang on were considered a sin by Indian society and most religions in India have proposed the same. In the case of Navtej Singh, 2018, it was ruled that Section 377 does not apply to consensual homosexual acts. Though the judiciary decriminalizes consensual homosexual activities, the community did not enjoy substantial legal rights or social status till now. This paper is aimed at examining the present status of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) community in India and their social perspective. KEYWORDS: LGBTQIA+, LGBT, Homosexual, Transgender, Religion, Personal Identity.
