Gays in the (South Korean) Military

“A ban that jails soldiers for up to one year for engaging in homosexual acts or sexual harassment is under review by South Korea’s Constitutional Court, reports AFP. At stake is the constitutionality of banning gay service members in a country where serving in the military is a requirement. South Korea’s defense ministry said it has asked the Constitutional Court to uphold the gay ban, a ministry spokesman said last week.” [OTM]
