Gay sex ruling to unlock ‘pink economy’ in India

AFP, MUMBAI, India

Research shows that LGBT-friendly policies in the workplace, such as equality training and non-discriminatory hiring practices, can boost profitability.

Activists hope the court ruling would help shift attitudes and boost the LGBT community’s economic engagement.

“The LGBT community is definitely an untapped market. The business potential is huge and set to grow,” said Parmesh Shahani, who heads up the cultural arm of India’s Godrej conglomerate.

“The verdict will catalyze change, and more companies will invest in products and services catering to the community. I hope the judgement creates more jobs and companies vie for LGBTQ talent,” he said.
