Trisha, heroine of the film Endrendrum Punnagai which hit the screens all over the State yesterday, has come out openly in support of the same-sex couples.
Trisha happens to be the first celebrity in Kollywood who has voiced open support for same-sex couples after the Supreme Court had held recently that same-sex marriages were ‘crime’ and would be declared ‘null and void’.
Many Bollywood celebrities and politicians have come out openly supporting the cause of the same-sex gay and lesbian couples.
Following Delhi High Court’s ruling a few years back that same-sex marriages weren’t a crime, many such couples had started ‘living together’ in Delhi and other metros and some other towns. However, the Supreme Court’s decision has shocked all of them who now have nowhere to hide.
Trisha has her own opinion on the issue. “Ours is a democratic country a person can be friendly with anybody and can have many number of friends.
It’s the preference of the individual. Same way, nobody can compel that a particular individual should have sex only with another particular individual. Having sex or not is purely an individual’s preference and in this issue, he/she shouldn’t be forced to have partners as per others’ liking,” she has said.
Kollywood is yet to react to Trisha’s daring support of the same-sex community.
