Not many come out in India as a Homosexual. Though Same Sex marriages are not legal in India, Padma Iyer from Mumbai approached prominent newspaper to place an advertisement seeking a groom for her son who is gay. Most of the newspapers denied to carry the commercial. Padma released the ad because she said it was not common in India for a live-in relationship and she had to give it out as groom seeking for wedding.
A national newspaper agreed to publish the advertisement as they had a classified weekly column for the LGBTQ community.
Something that is not so common in India is that of homosexual relationships being accepted by the society. Even after a year of judgement favoring the community, people are not so open minded to accept it enough to let people decide their personal choices. This is still a reason why not many in India accept how they feel for someone especially when they are homosexual.
