India has a long historical homosexual tradition. Literary evidence shows that homosexuality has been prevalent in India throughout the ages. Erotic sculptures that depict homosexuality can befound in many temples, and is also portrayed in many Mughal paintings.

In recent years and particularly since decriminalization of consensual homosexuality, India is slowly adopting a progressive attitude. Gay life is developing in the major cities where gay communities, clubs, saunas are emerging.
