After the Supreme Court overruled its own 2013 decision and partially struck down Section 377, a controversial British-era law that banned consensual gay sex, members of the LGBT community shared stories kept hidden in their hurt locker for years. Delhi-based fashion designer Michael has lived with shame and fear since his teenage years. Michael said, in 2004, when he was a young boy, he was molested by a taxi driver and two others. Shaken, Michael's first instinct was to go to his father. "The child was hospitalised for 22 months. But the dad did not have the courage to go to the police and complain," he said on NDTV, narrating his story in third person.
