Ban on homosexual in Singapore
Singapore: Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has announced that he will lift the ban on same-sex attractions in Singapore.
This ban legalized same-sex relationships in Singapore. While LGBTQ+ rights arguments are on the rise in Asian countries, restrictions on LGBTQ+ rights continue to persist in Singapore alone.
However, LGBTQ+ activists there continued to raise strong voices for their rights. It was in this context that they insisted that Section 377 of Singapore’s law, which criminalizes same-sex attraction, should be removed. Meanwhile, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced on television on Sunday night that the ban on same-sex attractions would be lifted.
While talking about this on television, Loong said, “This is the right thing to do. This law is being repealed because we believe that the majority of Singaporeans will accept it.”
Speaking about the removal, one Singaporean heterosexual attraction said, “We finally made it. Finally it happened. Today I am very happy,” he said.
