by Pablo “Pibe” Ruiz #LGBT twitter@gaiaitalia_eng #TrinidadandTobago

 

A Trinidad and Tobago High Court judge ruled on thursday 20 September, 2018 that sexual activity between consenting adults of the same sex is legal after a claim presented by activist Jason Jones in a High Court challenge on february 2017 arguing Sections 13 and 16 of the penal code were unconstitutional. High Court ruled in his favor and against colonial-era Sections 13 and 16 of the Sexual Offenses Act, overturning it.

The Attorney General said he will appeal the decision.
