Over 300 members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in Bangalore staged a rally Wednesday at Mysore Bank Circle seeking repeal of Article 377.
They were supported by human rights activists, NGOs and a host of writers. The protesters asked Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Home Minister K J George to direct the police not to harass gays and lesbians.
The protests would continue if their demands were not met, they warned.
