Malaysia Islamic Authority and Gay Cure Therapy; LGBT Content In Korean Schools

Malaysia Islamic Authority and Gay Cure Therapy

As sad and backward at this sounds, it's obviously a reality.

Malaysia’s official Islamic authority has openly endorsed ‘gay cure’ therapy.

The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) released a video last week explaining how non-LGBTI people could change their sexuality if they wanted to.

In the three minute video, Jakim said sexuality was like learning to ride a horse and if a LGBTI person wanted to become heterosexual they should receive training and guidance.

You can check that out here.

LGBT Content In Korean Schools

I like posting about these things whenever I see them. I think it's important to think globally in terms of LGBT issues.

LGBTI groups in South Korea are calling on the government to have LGBTI content added to sex education in schools.

The Department of Education currently has a sex education policy which preventions any mention of sexual minorities.

LGBTI advocates have labelled the policy as discriminatory.

There's more here. It goes on to mention many of the challenges LGBT youth face.
