Indian film festival promotes gay rights

Mumbai has wrapped up India’s largest gay film festival, seen as a step forward for gay rights in the country.

It is the first time in India that more than 100 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual-themed films have got past censors to be shown in public cinemas alongside mainstream Bollywood and Hollywood releases.

The films came from 25 countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, France and Israel.
