Randy Boissonnault’s appointment comes as the Liberal government prepares to introduce legislation to repeal a Criminal Code provision on anal intercourse.
Our society has evolved over the past few decades and our criminal justice system needs to evolve as well.

The proposed legislation known as Bill C-32 would repeal section 159 of the Criminal Code and prevent charges being laid against those 16 and older who engage in consensual anal intercourse.

It was only in 1982 that the criminalisation of gay and bisexual men in Northern Ireland was ruled unlawful by the European Court of Human Rights and we are pleased to see these homophobic and discriminatory convictions quashed, especially as they ruined the lives of so many men in Northern Ireland at the time.Northern Irish Justice Minister Claire Sugden

Men convicted under historic gay sex offences in Northern Ireland look set to be pardoned.

Northern Irish Justice Minister Claire Sugden has announced a motion to posthumously pardon gay and bisexual men who were convicted under now-abolished anti-gay sex offences.

The motion will now go before the Assembly for approval, and brings the country in line with England and Wales, who last month announced plans for automatic pardons to those convicted of such offences who have since died.

If it passes, the law – which has been dubbed Turing’s Law after gay Second World War codebreaker Alan Turing – will also allow living gay and bisexual men with historic convictions to apply for pardons.
