    The UK act was passed to deal with the problem of sexual assault on young girls, and prostitution. But the criminalisation of homosexual acts was due to a specific amendment to the act Henry Labouchere MP knew what he was doing when he moved that amendment. So, no accident there.


    The text of the amendment: ‘”Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or is a party to the commission of, or procures, or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with an other male person, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour, and being convicted thereof, shall be liable at the discretion of the Court to be imprisoned for any term not exceeding two years, with or without hard labour.’
