Bollywood Speaks Out re: Homosexuality

Bollywood personalities spoke out about the comments by Union Health Minister Ghuam Azad, he described homosexuality as a ‘disease’ and regretted that despite being ‘unnatural’, it now afflicts a substantial number of people in India.

“Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad needs urgent counseling for his regressive statement. His “unnatural” stand is dangerous for healthy democracy. Its because of these regressive people the largest democracy in the world deprives the largest number of sexual minorities their democratic rights,” filmmaker Onir.

Celina Jaitly: “I m shocked to hear that our health minister would make a statement about homosexuality calling it a “disease”… WHO does not think so Sir!.”

“Dear honourable Mr health minister, the World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from its list of diseases in 1990,” Celina said.

Filmmaker Tarun Mansukhani said, “Just woke up to read the astonishing comments made by our Union health minister, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad, who claims Homosexuality is a disease!! (Speechless…Abusive…ROFL…Abusive again….Pensive.)”

Actress Shahana Goswami tweeted, “How can we have a health minister who says gay sex is a disease?? My take on gay sex is that it is a personal choice made by people that is no one else’s business and affects nothing else they do!”

  1. Hi, the title of this post seems a little off. Shouldn’t it be “Bollywood Speaks Out Against Homophobia” or “Bollywood Speaks Out In Defense of Homosexuality”?
