Edge Boston reports;
A judge interpreting a colonial-era law has ruled that cross-dressing is a criminal offense only if it’s done for an “improper purpose” such as prostitution, but the partial victory has frustrated gay rights activists in Guyana who are pushing for the 120-year-old statute to be removed from the books. On Sunday, a group called the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination said the constitutional court’s “dubious decision” means police can continue to arrest cross-dressers and transgender citizens in the South American country for ambiguous reasons. They plan to appeal the judgment.
Transgender rights continue to move to the forefront – hopefully Guyana will get rid of this law completely soon.
