New Delhi: Actress Huma Qureshi has joined forces with a poetic campaign called 'Ishq ki Ijaazat' which will be launched online to spread awareness about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.


"Ishq ki Ijaazat" is a film poem by Satyanshu and Devanshu Singh, and Huma is said to have rendered the poetry.

"I believe everyone should have the freedom to choose for themselves," Huma said in a statement.

The initiative is not an angry statement against Article 377 that criminalises homosexuality. It is a poetic campaign to urge people to bring love out in the open and not about sexual preferences. It is about a basic right that every human being deserves - to be able to love with dignity, and not prejudice, the statement said.
