In August 2022, the High Court of Saint Kitts and Nevis ruled that sections 56 and 57 of the Offences Against the Person Act, which criminalise same-sex activity, were unconstitutional in that they contravened the right to protection of personal privacy and the right to freedom of expression. The court ruled that they were null and void and of no force and effect to the extent that they criminalises any acts constituting consensual sexual conduct in private between adults.
