Hundreds join colourful Pride parade in New Delhi

Hundreds of people have gathered in New Delhi for gay pride celebrations.

Many LGBTQ activists celebrated on Sunday the progress its community has made within India over recent years.

Earlier this year, India's top court struck down a colonial-era law that made homosexual acts punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a landmark victory for gay rights in the world's largest democracy.
