NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The suicide of a lesbian couple who jumped into a river and drowned highlights the hidden struggles of gay women in India, subjected to ‘corrective rape’ cures and family pressure to marry. The women left suicide notes before killing themselves in the western state of Gujarat. A police officer, who declined to give his name refused to confirm whether one woman also threw her toddler into the river. “We are leaving this world to live with each other. The world did not allow us to stay together”.
