Your Monday Briefing: Singapore to Decriminalize Gay Sex

Singapore to decriminalize gay sex Singapore’s prime minister Lee Hsien Loong said the country would decriminalize sex between consenting men, repealing a colonial-era law.

But Lee said he would also propose a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Singapore’s gay community has fought for years to repeal the law, known as Section 377A, arguing that it promotes discrimination even if it is not enforced.

In a statement, more than a dozen L.G.B.T.Q. community groups expressed relief about the repeal but registered their concern over the constitutional amendment.
