Consensual same-sex sexual activity is not a crime. Consensual same-sex sexual activity between people who are above the age of consent should not be criminalised. The following offences, or any with similar effect, should be abolished: indecency (or gross indecency) between people of the same sex, unnatural acts, carnal knowledge/intercourse against the order of nature, buggery, sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism, same-sex sexual relations, fellatio, and cunnilingus.
Some Commonwealth countries have repealed these offences through legislation. In others, local courts have found these offences to be unconstitutional, striking down the offending provisions in the criminal law.
