India ruling brings to 77 the number of countries where it’s illegal to be gay

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

anti-gayA ruling Wednesday by India’s Supreme Court to re-criminalize homosexuality brings to 77 the total number of countries where homosexuality is illegal.

The colonial-era law criminalizing homosexuality was first struck down by a lower court in 2009, but the high court, in overturning the ruling, said it was up to lawmakers, not the courts, to repeal the law.

With that ruling, India joins 76 other countries where homosexuality behavior is illegal, according to a 2013 report from the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association. In five of these countries — Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, Sudan — as well as parts of Nigeria and Somalia, homosexuality is punishable by death.

Following is that list of 77 countries:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Algeria
  3. Angola
  4. Antigua and Barbuda
  5. Bangladesh
  6. Barbados
  7. Belize
  8. Bhutan
  9. Botswana
  10. Brunei
  11. Burundi
  12. Cameroon
  13. Comoros

  18. Gambia
  19. Ghana
  20. Grenada
  21. Guinea
  22. Guyana
  23. India
  24. Iran
  25. Jamaica

  27. Kiribati
  28. Kuwait
  29. Lebanon
  30. Liberia
  31. Libya
  32. Malawi
  33. Malaysia
  34. Maldives
  35. Mauritania
  36. Mauritius
  37. Morocco

  40. Namibia
  41. Nauru
  42. Nigeria
  43. Oman
  44. Pakistan
  45. Palau
  46. Papua New Guinea
  47. Qatar
  48. Samoa
  49. São Tomé and Principe
  50. Saudi Arabia
  51. Senegal
  52. Seychelles
  53. Sierra Leone
  54. Singapore
  55. Solomon Islands
  56. Somalia
  57. South Sudan

  115. India has been bombarded since the 1500′s by different tribes, caste systems, and invaders. Each set of invaders has changed the face of India and shaped it to its current form. Unfortunately as some discriminatory laws are discarded, others are revived. In this case it is Colonial Law. Many Indians are working to repeal the antiquated laws. As long as the current government exists though, that will be all but impossible.

  139. Opal, there are good people here and bad people, in every state, in every town, and within each town. Do not judge us by the bad and intolerant, people here, because then you are condemning all the good people here as well.

  144. Wow. Gonna have to start boycotting companies who send out their service calls to India. Oh, and don’t think I can’t tell when I’m talking to India.

    Posted on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 8:53pm
  145. While I do agree India & these 76 other countries need to get their heads out of their asses, I don’t agree with those of you being so harsh on ALL the people from these countries. My dad married a woman from India (surprising because my dad was the most racist person I know AND his wife is only 5 years older than me.) & she is one of the smartest, most caring woman I’ve ever known. She’s helped make my dad a better person, a more accepting person & the love radiates between them. We shouldn’t let ourselves base our opinion on the entire people of any country using only our anger over the ignorance of their lawmakers.

  160. I find it sad that they are making homosexuality illegal(hello! Get with the times people!? It’s 2013!) but I’m not gonna boycott anything that has to do with India! If you’re doing this, you’re an idiot! Pretty much everything comes from India and China! My dad works with people in India! And he makes a ton of money! If I was in my dad shoes I’m not gonna give up making a shitload of money just cause I’m upset with India! Stop being like children and grow up ok?

  165. Ghandi was strongly rumored to be bisxual through some of the letters he wrote to a man. The letters have been sealed and are no longer available to the public. India needs to get their heads out of their butts. Gay people are everywhere, including your precious icon. Accept it and move on.

  166. What are they afraid of?

    Posted on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 11:08pm
  167. Very depressing. There is so much to do. But we outsiders can only exert pressure on those governments and countries, yet the change must emerge from within the respective country and its gays.
