Pakistani actress Veena Malik, who recently avowed her support for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community, did a sexy photoshoot patronising homosexual rights.
"I am openly supporting the LGBT community and I don't feel shy about doing it," she had said.
Sadly, despite worldwide awareness and remonstrations for gay rights, homosexuality still remains a taboo, which is criminalized in most parts of the world, including India.
"Homosexuality is a taboo subject for the society but if it should taken in a positive way we will realize that every person have own life and have a right to live in the own way," Veena said.
Over the years, several B-town celebs have come out in the open to support the community. Even, American president Barack Obama declared his support for same-sex marriages and equal rights for gay community earlier this year.
"If American President Barack Obama and Hollywood beauties can stand up for the gay marriage, so why not every country's citizen should support this cause?" she said in an earlier interview.
After Celina Jaitley, now Veena Malik is heading forward to contribute her bit for the cause and help them in fighting for their rights.
"I think this cause should be discussed like game in a sexual orientation. Rights for all mean all - irrespective of colour, gender or sexual orientation. It's a matter of human dignity," Veena added.
Veena's photo shoot is a medium to reach out to the masses and create awareness about this cause.
"A huge diversity of people participating the London 2012 Olympic Games, which includes gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals and couples. If games are allowing them to be a part of this so why should not bollywood and people corroborate LGBT", she asserted.
In 2009, Bollywood actress and gay rights activist Celina Jaitley affirmed her stand in favour of the amendment of Indian Penal Code's (IPC) controversial Section 377 that stipulates homosexuality as a criminal offence.
"Bollywood is very supportive and the day this article (section) is repealed," Celina Jaitley had said earlier. "I am sure many people will come out openly in support of that and there are a lot of people in our industry who are from the sexual minority and they have given a lot to our industry."
"If the Article (Section) 377 is amended, then many people will come out in support. How would people come out in support of the activity, which doesn't have the support of the law? Who will protect the people? I don't blame anyone for not supporting. People fear to support such an act, when there is no law to protect them," Jaitley had said.
