Menaka Guruswamy and Arundhati Katju, the lawyers who were at the forefront of the fight against the draconian Section 377 came out as a couple, just last night.
In an interview with CNN, the two lawyers admitted that the historic verdict that decriminalised homosexuality was not just a huge win for India but also a personal victory for them.
This was a great news for the entire country and the couple received immense love and support from people on Twitter.
