Meet the Journalists: Aarti Singh and Jake Naughton

In 2009, India decriminalized same-sex sexual activity, marking a huge step towards progress for the country. But then, in 2012, the Supreme Court made it illegal once more, leaving LGBTQ people in India in a bizarre place—they couldn’t un-come out, nor could they live as freely as they had before.

Aarti Singh and Jake Naughton's project takes a deep look at the lives of the individuals affected. In September 2018, the Supreme Court struck down the law once and for all. But the country has a long way to go before anything like full equality exists.
