Indian State of Goa Plans Program To "Treat" LGBT Youths
The New York Times reported this week that the Indian state of Goa is planning to set up "camps" to treat gay, bisexual and transgender young people to rid them of their sexual orientations. Ramesh Tawadkar, the state's Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs, says the program, which will involve a well-known yoga guru, will teach LGBT youths how to experience "the true pleasures and bliss of life." Same-sex relations are illegal in India.
