Keep world politics away from men who have sex with men

The West should help get rid of harmful laws, support local activists to develop their own sexualities; but avoid imposing Western LGBT human rights ideology.

On Wednesday 3rd April Brunei enacted parts IV and V of a new penal code which includes stoning for same-sex behaviour. There has been an international outcry and many international human rights organisations have condemned this. The implications are disastrous. However, the West must choose its method of intervention carefully.
