LGBT rights in Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka, homosexuality (same-sex sexual activity) is illegal under a broad provision dealing with, "gross indecency", and no national legislation exists to protect LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) people from harassment or discrimination. However the penal provision dealing with "gross indecency" has never been applied there by the courts against LGBT people.
