Guyana keeps gay sex ban, opposes discrimination

Monday Mar 21, 2011

The government of the South American nation of Guyana said March 10 that it opposes both anti-gay discrimination and advocacy of gay "lifestyles."

Gay activists called the statement inadequate and said that if the government wanted to lessen anti-gay discrimination, it should repeal laws that ban gay sex and cross-dressing.

The ban on cross-dressing is being challenged at present in the Supreme Court on constitutional grounds.
