Angola decriminalizes homosexuality

Angola has decriminalized same sex acts in the country rescinding its “vices against nature” law which is similar to the buggery law in Jamaica which basically makes homosexuality illegal.

The Angolan move comes just weeks after India legalized homosexuality and three years after Mozambique also decriminalized homosexuality.

There has been a huge push recently for Black and Brown countries to get rid of colonial laws that make homosexuality illegal. There was a time when colonial powers needed Black and Brown people to reproduce at a high rate in order for colonial powers to have access to more slave and or low wage labor. Fast forward to today, the earth is overcrowded and Black and Brown people are reproducing at a higher level than whites, therefore the colonial powers need homosexuality to be legal in order to stem the growth of Black and Brown people.

The Angolan government is also prohibiting discrimination against people on the basis of sexual orientation. Anyone refusing to employ or provide services to individuals based on their sexual orientation will face up to two years in prison.

While there were no known prosecutions under the “vice against nature” law, it curtailed the rights and freedoms of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, subjecting their intimate lives to unwarranted scrutiny.

As more Black and Brown countries move toward legalizing or decriminalizing homosexuality, Jamaica has kept its law prohibiting buggery intact.
