Eunuchs oppose gay sex ruling

While the religious leaders were opposed to legalising gay sex on grounds of morality, the eunuchs have a more compelling reason to oppose the same. According to the eunuchs the move would affect their livelihood. “We earn our livelihood by singing and dancing at functions held after a child is born in a family,” said the eunuchs.

“Legalisation of homosexuality and abolition of Section 377 of the IPC could result in increased gay marriages. Obviously we cannot expect children out of such wedlocks,” quipped Puja, an eunuch.

In fact the eunuchs, who had held a national convention in UP’s Etah town, which concluded on Monday, condemned the move to legalise gay sex. “The government must not succumb to any kind of pressure and abolish Sec 377,” it said, according to Puja, convenor of the “Kinnar Mahasammelan”.

Such move can destroy our culture and we may be forced to become beggars, Jameela, another eunuch said.
