Holding placards that ranged from the amusing 'Hum bhi dekhen-gay' to the more straightforward 'citizenship rights are LGBTQ rights', the queer community exercised their democratic right to protest against the draconian Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the nationwide NPR-NRC, calling them 'anti-muslim', 'anti-transgender' and 'anti-queer'.

Speaking exclusively to SabrangIndia, Human rights activist Harish Iyer said, "LGBTQ people exist in the intersections of caste, religion, creed and regions. There're queer Muslims, there are trans Muslims and any issue that affects anybody, affects queer people too."
