I like to start a good honest trust friendship with a foreign friend. If you like we can chat from email letters or whatsapp. But coming here some 30 years later in late 2014, we wondered if much has changed.Gays in Sri Lanka are pretty much regarded as criminals, like gays in India or gays in the Maldives.
A significant cultural change is needed before anything can happen, not to mention a repeal of the old colonial laws, which pretty much label us as criminals!
They recently announced they would do everything to prevent LGBT rights from being introduced in Sri Lanka.
Tourism and Christian Affairs Minister John Amaratunga said that both he and Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, would ensure such rights would not be introduced in the new constitution.
Funny Boy is a Sri Lankan book Stefan grew up with and loved (written by Shyam Selvadurai and highly recommended to any LGBT traveller visiting Sri Lanka).
It tells the story of a young Tamil gay boy called Arjy growing up in 1980s Sri Lanka during the civil war era, struggling to come to grips with his homosexuality in a very religious and traditional family and society.Despite attempts by the UN and various Sri Lankan LGBT protest groups to question and repeal these laws, the government has not historically been the most obliging: Former President Rajapaksa, stated gay marriage would ruin the Buddhist heritage of the nation.He also opposed Norway’s ambassador to Sri Lanka (Grete Lochen) bringing her wife into Sri Lanka arguing that lesbian marriages are not legal in Sri Lanka, so allowing *them* in would encourage Sri Lankan women to want to behave in The recent government of Maithripala Sirisena is sadly no better.Despite the politics, I must clearly state that the majority religion in Sri Lanka (Buddhism) holds no negative attitudes towards homosexuality, despite some of our political leaders trying to use our religions as a means to justify a homophobic culture.
