Harish Iyer, is an Indian equal rights activist. Iyer engages in advocacy for a number of causes, including promoting the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, children, women, animals, and survivors of child sex abuse. Harish Iyer was also one of the most vocal proponents of the decriminalization of homosexuality in India. He was one of the people to move the Indian Supreme Court to decriminalize homosexuality. In June 2018, he filed an Impleadement Application in the 377 cases. In August 2018, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) appointed Iyer to the Core Group on LGBTI issues. This is the first group set up to look into concerns and challenges of the community, in a bid to harmonize existing laws with the needs of the community. He also was the first Guest on Aamir Khans show Satyamev Jayate where he gave a first-hand account of his abuse and answers the often asked question ‘Did sexual abuse from a male member make him a homosexual?’ Trigger warning: if this episode disturbs you please seek counsel from a mental health expert and reach out for help if needed.
