Told through the voices of lawyers, activists and community leaders, No Easy Walk to Freedom exposes human rights violations perpetrated under section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises homosexuality. The film also documents the growth of queer organising in India in the context of this historic legal battle to overturn a colonial-era law.

It is moving examination of the struggle to decriminalise homosexuality in contemporary India, told through the voices of HIV AIDS workers, queer activists, community leaders and legal experts. It is a history with far reaching implications for the struggle to remove these colonial era laws and to uphold lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender human rights worldwide.

Post screening discussion including Ailbhe Smyth, Feminist Academic and LGBT activist.
