Singapore to keep LGBTQ+ content restrictions despite decriminalising gay sex

Reading now: 453

Singapore’s government confirmed that it will continue to restrict LGBTQ+ film and media content for older audiences, despite repealing its ban on gay sex.

The move to repeal the colonial-era law was announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 21 August. He said it would bring the country’s legal systems in line with “current social mores, and I hope, provide some relief to gay Singaporeans”.

The 377A law was first introduced by the British colonial government in the 1930s before Singapore opted to keep it in place after independence in 1965.
