Gay Guide Singapore

Despite a much-noticed campaign in 2007 to repeal article 377A, which prohibits anal and oral sex between men, it remains in the legal code, even though the Prime Minister himself declared this law to be merely a symbol of "conservative society" and assured that gays would not be persecuted. However, abolishing the law could at present be seen as a false signal, as it would only be a matter of time before homosexuals would also demand a right to marriage and adoption. On 29 October 2014, article 377A was considered compatible with the constitution by the Supreme Court - it would not violate the fundamental right to life and liberty. This can only be seen as a great defeat for the rights of gays. In 2015, Singapore lifted the entry ban for HIV-positive people. However, there is still no anti-discrimination protection for LGBT. However, more and more people are taking to the streets for the rights of LGBT, especially the younger generations. An estimated 30,000 people took part in the annual Pride Parade, the Pink Dot SG.
