What happened actually is that when several members of the LGBTQI community walked the 10th Queer Pride Parade in Delhi, one of them had a wedding proposal for Shashi Tharoor. A Twitter handle named GaylaxyMagazine posted, “Mr. Shashi Tharoor you should really see this. You have a huge fan following… #DelhiQueerPride2017.” With its tweet, GaylaxyMagazine also shared a picture showing a person holding a chart paper that read, “SHASHI THAROOR, MARRY ME.” Now, Shashi Tharoor has responded to the ‘marriage proposal tweet’. “Haha! Now if they were only registered to vote in Thiruvananthapuram, it would be even better!,” Tharoor has tweeted. Now, Tharoor’s response is winning hearts at the internet and social media. Several people had participated in the 10th Delhi Queer Pride Parade on Sunday. Reportedly, over 5,000 participants walked for LGBT rights and celebrated the historic 10th edition. Since its inception in 2008, the community-funded Delhi Queer Pride Parade has strengthened. The Delhi Queer Pride Parade primarily addresses Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (which criminalises homosexuality). People from various walks of life had assembled at Barakhamba Road in New Delhi to celebrate the march.

Recently, Tharoor made headlines after the battle for a seat in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) between India and Britain had run into stalemate. Congress leader Shashi Tharoor accused the UK of trying to stall the will of the majority of the UN General Assembly. Dalveer Bhandari from India and Christopher Greenwood from the UK are seeking re-election at the Hague-based International Court of Justice. Ahead of the voting, Congress leader and former top UN official Shashi Tharoor had said that the voice of the General Assembly has been ignored for too long.
