Days later India legalized consensual homosexual sex in a historical judicial judgment, a Singaporean DJ has filed a lawsuit to deliver that judgment to his home nation.

Johnson Ong Ming, that plays as DJ Big Kid, filed the lawsuit from the Singaporean high-profile on Monday to battle Section 377A, the clause at the nation ’s Penal Code that prohibits any “gross indecency” involving two guys. It is comparable to the same British colonial-era ordinance which was only eliminated in India a week, also in Taiwan previous year.

The 43-year-old DJ’s attorneys, Suang Wijaya and Eugene Thuraisingam, issued a joint announcement to Reuters on Wednesday, stating the sanction is “in breach human dignity. ” 

“-LRB-**************) wish to assert Section 377It’s foolish and random,” composed Ming’s attorneys, that are working on the case pro bono.

Though the principle isn’t strictly enforced, the nation still retains largely conservative viewpoints toward LGBT men and women. A petition began Sunday to conserve Section 377A in Singapore has gained almost 100,000 signatures.

Other former British colonies( such as Malaysia and Ghana, prohibit homosexual sexual relationships under a similar plan based on British colonial rule.
