Video: Gay rights gets India boost

Activists herald court decision that legalises homosexuality.

    Indian gay rights activists have heralded a landmark court decision that has legalised homosexual sex.

    But the decision, a milestone in a decades-long battle for acceptance by the India's gay community, has angered religious leaders, some of whom are calling for the ruling to be repealed.

    Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri met one gay man celebrating the move towards equality.
