What kind of sanctions, if any, should the international community place on countries that adopt anti-homosexual legislation?
Have you ever carried out an investigation on the economic costs of homo-latria (the worship and promotion of the homosexual ideology), while the development needs of billions of people and families are neglected? Is the one-sided approach reflected in the very title of the panel indicative of how international organizations and the privileged ones try to impose a dictatorial agenda over the strong objection of countries and cultures throughout the world?
Even if the cost of excluding sexual minorities are billons of dollar, there are countries and societies that consider homosexualism as taboos by their own tradition or religion. Will they agree to adopt homosexuallism? It might seem like a threat to them for others to force them to give up their customs or beliefs.

By excluding gays, what effect on economic development?
One issue that might have a great difference is information and education around the effects that comes from exclusion, non-acceptance or rather turn the mindset around to something positive, the possibilities for innovation, development if including and accepting others no matter who you love. Are ther any plans for funding such programs of information an education, this in combination of - no or less sanctions if the country allows this information and education program being put in place generally?
I'm gay, HIV+, born in and currently residing in Singapore. A country where homosexuality is still criminalized despite the law not being actively enforced by the government - Section 377a
That has given rise of HIV rates within the MSM community here, heavy censorship of positive portrayals of same-sex relationships in the cinemas and on TV, LGBT discrimination by authorities & faiths goes unchecked, just to name a few. Even Recently the Prime Minister have said that 'Because it’s always been there and I think we just leave it.'
With a lack of political willpower to change the laws, and given Singapore's economic power status within the Asia, what do you think CAN be done for countries that are trapped within this limbo state of LGBT rights?
