"Neither prostitution nor homosexual sex is an offence under the Penal Code. However, police frequently charge, or threaten to charge, gay men, transvestites and prostitutes (sometimes lesbians) with offending "morality and public decency" if seen expressing physical affection in public. At times, transvestites and prostitutes are charged with "public scandal" merely for being cross-dressed and/or working the street."(Ordoņez and Elliott)
