      Dear Friends,

      Voices against 377 is a coalition of NGOs and progressive groups
      based in Delhi ( including PRISM, Nigah Media Collective, Saheli,
      Anjuman,TARSHI, Amnesty International India, Haq, Partners in Law and
      Development, SAMA, CREA, Nirantar, Breakthrough and Jagori). It is a
      point of intersection and dialogue between various social movements
      that these groups represent, where a united voice is being
      articulated against the Article 377 of Indian Penal Code which
      criminalizes private consensual sexual acts deemed to against the
      order of nature.

      The law has been used by the police to intimidate same sex desiring
      people and has been a source of serious human rights violations . As
      part of this initiative we have compiled a report called "Rights for
      All: Ending Discrimination against Queer Desire under Section 377",
      which documents the violations and injustice meted out to same sex
      desiring people in India as a result of the Article 377 and
      incorporates perspectives from various social movements in India like
      the women's movement, the child rights groups, human rights
      perspectives, queer movements, health movements and many more. The
      report also discusses the problems within the mental health
      profession which is so deeply biased against alternative and
      marginalized sexualities along with issues related to HIV/AIDS
      initiatives and implications.

      This is to inform you that we shall be accepting orders for
      distribution of copies of the report to individuals and
      organizations.The report has been priced at the rate of Rs. 20/- per
      copy. Kindly send in your orders by the 23rd of August at the
      following email address : voicesagainst377@....

      Also kindly specify clearly your/your organization's name, address,
      telephone no. and email along with the number of
      copies. Please write in the emails with "VOICES" as the subject so
      that we do not miss out on any of the orders.

      Thanking You,

      In Solidarity,

      Partha Pratim Shil,
      for Voices Against 377
