Singapore’s government has announced the repeal of a colonial-era law, Section 377A, criminalizing sex between men, with a two-year jail term. While the move was welcomed by many, the government clarified that it would continue to regulate and categorize LGBTQ content in media, imposing age restrictions even after the law’s repeal. The Films Act and the InfoComm Media Development Authority will maintain restrictions on content perceived as promoting homosexuality. The repeal was seen as a positive step for LGBTQ rights, but concerns were raised about ongoing discrimination in media accessibility, prompting a mixed response from activists.
