SINGAPORE — Singaporean celebrities are rapping for repeal of a law that makes gay sex a criminal offence. The celebrities appear in a video posted on the YouTube website in support of a Singaporean legislator’s push to repeal a law making gay sex a criminal offence, activists said Friday. “Repeal it!” the celebrities urge in the video which ends with the words: “It’s not just a gay thing. It’s about equality.”
