A man from Malaysia is about to challenge a religious state law. This law bans gay sex almost in the whole country. Court allowed this man to participate on this case. This man (30) remains actuallyanonymous because he has right for privacy. A man was arrested 2018 for gay sex, but he denied it and decided to fill the lawsuit after that. His arrest was a part of raid and 5 men were also jailed because of their sex charges. Malaysia is a country where gay sex can be punished by 20 years imprisonment. Homosexuality is forbidden by the country’s secular. One can be punished corporal and get 20 years in prison. LGBT people have no support and protection in the country. Government is sure that queer people can be cured, so they are working on rehabilitation programme for gays. Government representatives say they have already cured about 1,500 homosexual people. But man, who filled the lawsuit, claims that country’s government has no right to ban “intercourse against the order of nature”. If this case will be successful, it can influence other Malaysian states.
