Hundreds of activists on Sunday staged a parade in New Delhi calling for the repeal of an Indian law that criminalizes gay sex.

The law, Section 377 of the Penal Code, a holdover from British colonial rule, makes gay sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

In 2013, India's highest court overturned a lower court's 2009 finding that intercourse between two consenting same-sex adults is legal, effectively reinstating the ban. India's Supreme Court said that only lawmakers could change Section 377.

Parliament, however, has failed to act.

“There has been a lot of change, and we have gone back also,” Saurav Jain, an architect who attended the parade, told the AP.

Activist Rituparna Borah told the AP that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government does not support LGBT rights.

“We have yet to have an inclusive society,” she said.
