Lecture: Arundhati Katju, From Criminal to Citizen: Litigating for LGBTQ Rights in India
Join the McClung Museum for a lecture by Arundhati Katju, an Indian litigator who practices law before the Supreme Court of India . She will present the talk, "From Criminal to Citizen: Litigating for LGBTQ Rights in India."
Her work encompasses a broad array of practice areas, including white collar defense, legal aid, and LGBT rights litigation. Arundhati successfully represented the lead petitioners in the Indian Supreme Court’s historic judgment in Navtej Singh Johar and others v Union of India, where the Court struck down India’s 157-year-old sodomy law and upheld the rights of LGBT Indians to equality and dignity.
Katju's talk, title TBA, is part of programming related to the McClung Museum's special exhibition, Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India.
Event is free and open to all and held in the McClung Museum Auditorium.
