NEW DELHI - Delhi is all set to host the third edition of the Gay Pride parade Nov 28, an organiser said Monday.
A celebration by gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders, the parade is expected to see around 2,000 people march from the Barakhamba Road to Jantar Mantar in central Delhi.
The venue for the march is actually subject to police permission, but we are expecting it to be in central Delhi. We will have a fund raiser for the march Nov 12, an organiser told IANS.
In 2008, the parade was organised for the first time in the national capital. The previous two editions of the march were organised in the months of June.
On July 2, there was a march by the gay community in the capital to mark a year of decriminalisation of homosexuality in India.
