Goa to set up centres to cure gays !

Goa sports and youth affairs minister Ramesh Tawadkar announced that the government is planning to set up centres to treat LGBT youth and make them 'normal'. Minister Tawadkar said they intend set up centres like Alcoholics Anonymous centres to train the LGBT youth and also provide them with medications. The policy lists LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community among the stigmatised groups that need focused attention. He said as in the case of groups like juvenile offenders, drug users, marginalised or migrant youth, and geographically disadvantaged youth, a detailed survey of the LGBT community will be carried out so their problems can be specifically addressed.
