In the country of India homosexual acts are still illegal, although this does not mean when traveling there it will not be impossible to find India gay clubs. There is a large gay community, however they are rather secretive due to the laws, for this reason discretion should be used when looking for bars or clubs.
There are some bars that are beginning to hold gay nights in New Delhi and in Bombay, however these are not usually publicized. They are mostly by word of mouth when these nights are held; two of these India gay bars are the Concorde on Saturday nights and the Kuki.
There are also "farm parties" these are a night of dancing; drinking and conversation where locals rent private rooms to hold these farm parties. The place that is rented is usually on the outskirts of the city and is by word of mouth for the invited guests.
The climate is beginning to change and India gay clubs will not be far off, in Bombay they started a gay magazine in 1989 that is still running strong and there are approximately a dozen gay activist groups. Last year in Bombay there was a gay film festival held that was a three day event showing forty films. Another event that took place was a lesbian march in the capitol city of New Delhi and there are approximately six lesbian groups that are promoting gay rights.
The days of secret meetings and hidden gatherings is becoming a thing of the past in India and the proof is in the few bars that have begun holding an unadvertised gay night and the reasoning for not advertising is out of fear of attacks until these type of events become more accepted.
