A lesbian couple had filed a petition in the Madras High Court seeking protection because their parents opposed their relationship and filed an FIR against them after they left their family homes. Justice Anand Venkatesh had ordered the parents to meet a psychologist. After the meet the parents dropped the Police Complaint and the police assured that there would be no harassment from their end. Impressed with the positive effects of the counselling, the judge has ordered the parents to undergo one more session with the psychologist AND he himself will be undergoing a session with a psychologist to understand LGBTQIA + relationships better.
He said, “I am not fully woke in this area. If I undergo a session with a psychologist, it will pave my way of evolution. Ultimately, while writing an order, the words must not only come from my head but also from my heart.”
