This article has one primary objective i.e., to study and understand the progression of LGBT+ rights and laws relating to it in the current era. India and the United Kingdom are the two countries that are covered in this article. The article traces the timeline of laws and rights related to the LGBT+ community in both these countries. Both the countries have a special relationship. Most of the criminal laws of one nation find their origin in the former country. British ruled over India for 200 years and gave India much of its present-day criminal system and laws. Hence, these two nations are tried to be studied in one article. The article aims to provide a better understanding of the history of laws related to the LGBT+ community in these two nations.
