Attitude cites OutRight's Executive Deputy Director Maria Sjödin in an article about Sudan abolishing the death penalty for same-sex intimacy.
"The removal of the death penalty for same-sex intimacy in Sudan among other important reforms, such as the banning of female genital mutilation and stoning for apostasy, is an important step for the human rights of LGBTIQ people, and human rights in Sudan overall. It is astonishing that over a third of the world's countries continue to criminalize same-sex love, and even more staggering that a handful prescribe the death penalty for consensual same-sex intimacy. It is encouraging that as of now, that number has been reduced by one. We can only hope that decriminalisation of same-sex love will follow."
