So let us tell you what is Section 377

Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code is a section of the Indian Penal Court introduced in 1861 during the British rule of India . Modelled on the Buggery Act , it used to criminalise sexual activities "against the order of nature". On 6 September 2018, the Supreme court of India decided that the application of Section 377 to consensual homosexual sex between adults was unconstitutional, "irrational, indefensible and manifestly arbitrary", but that Section 377 remains in force relating to sex with minors, non-consensual sexual acts, and bestiality.

It means the realationship between LGBT(Lesbian , Gays, Bisexual and Transgender) was Unconstitutional and Inhuman In that Law.

Portions of the section were first struck down as unconstitutional with respect to gay sex by the Delhi High Court in July 2009.

In January 2018, the SC agreed to hear a petition to revisit the 2013 Naz Foundationjudgment. On 6 September 2018, the court ruled unanimously in Navtej Sngh Johar v. Union of India that  Section 377 was unconstitutional "in so far as it criminalises consensual sexual conduct between adults of the same sex".
