Bollywood Actor Tackles The Homophobic Indian Man: VIDEO


Earlier this month, the Indian Supreme Court reinstated a penal code from the British colonial era that explicitly criminalizes gay sex. In the wake of this shocking decision, Bollywood actor Imran Khan, who has a substantial gay following in India, took the opportunity to address some mistaken notions about homosexuality in a new video, reports. In the clip, the actor poses as a sex advice columnist of sorts and answers viewers' questions (which were sent to "") about homosexuality.

  3. Terrific, well-presented and produced first rate humor, a class act far above the average attempt at gay-positive wit or protest. A relief in fact.

  4. If that's the wording of the law, I don't see how it could be used to punish people for having gay sex. We now know that same-sex intercourse is widespread in nature, thus totally in line with the order of nature.

  8. 'Hope you're enjoying 1860.'

    Take a clue from the UK, India. Ya. The same UK that pressed those sodomy laws onto India during colonization. The Queen just issued a state apology to one of the UK's greatest WWII heros for destroying his life under those same laws.

  9. Khan is more popular in India than Tom Cruise is in the US. He is also far more intelligent. His work against female feticide and child sex crimes have been the greatest thing in India since independence. I wish the US had media icons with half this man's compassion.
