Gohil Urges Government to Legalise Same-sex Marriage Amid Supreme Court Hearing

LGBTQIA activist Manavendra Singh Gohil, popularly known as the “gay prince”, urged the government to legalise same-sex marriage in the country.

“We want to be allowed to live and have rights like married couples do in India. That was the purpose of the petition before the Supreme Court”, Gohil, who belongs to the royal family of the erstwhile princely state of Rajpipla, said during a press conference in Rajkot Sunday.

A marathon hearing seeking legal recognition of same-sex marriages in India is underway in the apex court by a five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud.
