More than 250 people joined a Queer Pride parade in India's Capital on Sunday.

Revelers celebrated the third year anniversary of Delhi High Court's ruling decriminalizing gay sex between consenting adults.

“The high court order is one of the most important decisions and a very welcome move,” Noorie, who works for an NGO that helps settle gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people is quoted as saying by the UK tabloid Daily Mail. “But then social acceptance for the same is still a far way off. The society still has some learning to do in terms of accepting people who are different.”

Marchers stepped off from Barakhamba Road and made their way to Jantar Mantar carrying an oversized rainbow flag, a symbol of gay rights.

“We are demanding that all people be allowed to exercise their right to live their lives with dignity and freedom, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation,” organizing groups said in a statement.

While acceptance is slowly increasing in Indian, many participants wore masks to hide their identity.

The fifth annual parade was the largest yet.
