Sri Lanka’s top politicians have taken a decision on legalising homosexuality. The cabinet met yesterday to discuss proposals to decriminalise same-sex acts. Currently same-sex acts, by a person of any gender, are illegal under Sri Lankan law. Households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for any the protection given to married couples. Some private clinics in Sri Lanka claim to be able to “cure” patients of their homosexuality, despite the fact its widely recognised same-sex thoughts can not be changed by therapy.
