“We are all human” says gay rights actvist
Sri Lankan politics, though notoriously prone to character assassination has never had a history of villifying its stakeholders based on their sexual orientation. That is a positive side of the political culture, which, the country could be proud of, though the political culture in this country in general is largely illiberal, feudal and is based on a system of patronage, which is, of course the sad side of it. However, sexual orientation – be it gay, lesbian, heterosexual or bisexual, (even pansexual) – has never been a handicap to aspire for political office. We have had an openly gay foreign minister, a prime minister and some others who are gender ‘vague’, but none denounced them for their sexual orientation.
