Most Singapore residents favour retaining 377A without enforcement: survey

Most Singapore residents favour retaining Section 377A of the Penal Code even if it is not enforced, a survey conducted by market research consultancy Blackbox Research shows.

Section 377A criminalises sex between men but authorities in Singapore have said it is rarely enforced.

One of the questions posed by the recent survey commissioned by Yahoo News Singapore was: “Singapore should keep Section 377A even if it is not enforced. Do you agree?”

Of the 1,000 respondents, 42 per cent strongly agreed or agreed with the statement, with 19 per cent strongly disagreeing or disagreeing. The remaining 40 per cent expressed a neutral stance on the issue.
