‘Queering the Law: Making Indian Laws LGBT+ Inclusive’ is a set of five Chapters that analyses India’s legal regime across the broad themes of ‘Identity’, ‘Violence’, ‘Family’ and Employment’ post the Supreme Court of India’s landmark decisions on transgender rights in NALSA and the decriminalisation of same-sex relationships in Navtej Johar, to identify laws that either continue to operate in the male-female binary or discriminate against LGBT+ persons. It contextualises the need for legal inclusion and engages with some of the existing debates on the legal inclusion of LGBT+ persons. The Chapters are however not directly aimed at legislative reform but seek to act as a resource to facilitate conversations on legal inclusion.
