“By and large, Singapore is a conservative society ...” (Image via video still) OutRight Action International reports that during a National Day Rally, Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced that Section 377A of the country's penal code will be repealed — which would mean the end of a 1938 law criminalizing sex between consenting adult men.

He will propose a constitutional amendment preserving the country's definition of marriage as being a union of man and woman.

OutRight board member Kathy Teo said of the development: This is an important first step. But there is a long way to go to protect the equal rights of LGBTQ people in Singapore.
