Desi Gay Couple Photo Shoot in Support LGBT

As part of a new campaign to promote the right to love, a Indian gay couple decided to celebrate their relationship in a unique and candid photo shoot.
As we all know, homosexuality remains illegal in India under a controversial colonial-era law. UrbanClap Co-founder Abhiraj Bhal said, “We at UrbanClap are a simple bunch of people. We believe that everyone should have the right to love whoever they want to as it’s the most basic human right.”

Bengaluru couple Vaibhav and Sukanth met on social networking site, and have been together for five years. They have both come out to their friends and family, and say they have a “great support structure”. The two saw the gay couple photo shoot as a fun opportunity to celebrate their relationship
Yet, same-sex relationships remain socially taboo for many, and Vaibhav and Sukanth were also the only couple in the campaign who chose to display their photographs publicly.
