The Belize Supreme Court is set to debate the repeal of the country’s sodomy law next month. Pink News reports:

Under the code, gay citizens face a penalty of up to ten years’ imprisonment. Section 53 states: “Every person who has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any person or animal shall be liable to imprisonment for ten years.” The United Belize Advocacy Movement, UNIBAM, is part of a constitutional challenge to overturn the ban on same-sex sexual activity.

These laws are coming up for review, and being repealed, with increasing frequency.
