Botswana Court Decriminalizes Gay Sex In Unanimous Decision

Botswana became the latest country to decriminalize gay sex on Tuesday.

The High Court rejected as unconstitutional sections of the penal code that punish same-sex relations with up to seven years in prison.

Jubilant activists in the packed courtroom cheered the unanimous decision in the southern African nation.

Botswana’s High Court said in its ruling that penalizing people for who they are is disrespectful, and that the law should not deal with private acts between consenting adults.
