Gay Guide Sri Lanka

According to paragraph 365a, homosexuality is illegal in Sri Lanka. This regulation is commonly also understood as applicable to gay sex. The UN hence requested Sri Lanka to clarify whether homosexuality is legal there. The official answer in 2014 explained that discrimination based on sexual orientation is considered unconstitutional and the sodomy law not applicable to homosexuals only, but all parts of the population. It should be noted here that nobody has been dragged to court because of gay sex for 20 years. The population is plagued by a rising number of abductions, illegal killings and children being recruited to the army. Yet in 2011, the Colombo Pride even "Equal Ground" could go ahead for the 7th time. It should be seen as a particularly resounding success that the celebrants included homosexuals as well as heterosexuals.
