Sandalwood's ace director actor Girish Karnad and Prakash Raj has expressed their support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. Girish was participating in the protest, which was organised by LGBT community, in city, on Sunday.

Recently, it was actor Prakash Raj and actress Sukrutha Vaagle had raised their voice against Supreme Court's verdict, which made gay sex illegal. Now, its the Jnanapeet award winner Girsh's turn to express his solidarity.

Girish Karnad said, "We've reached a state in our country where we cannot believe politicians, and got to a place where we trusted the courts. Now who do we trust? This is heartbreaking and a terrible thing. I'm here to say that my friends have the right to make love with who they wish."

Supreme Court ordered that gay sex was illegal, by striking down the historic Delhi High Court verdict. In the wake of the judgement, activists across India staged massive protests.

Many celebrities came out in the open to support LGBT rights. Prakash Raj had also requested his fans to sign an online petition, which will urge the government to recognise the personal choices in the country. Sukrutha Vaagle had expressed her views in her micro-blogging site.
