A teen in India, was forced to have sex with his own mother in order to cure him of being gay, an LGBT rights group said.
The LGBT rights group in Telangana, said that families are desperate to ensure that their members are straight, and a member of the family is handpick to perform sex acts on gay members.
In one shocking case, a gay boy was forced to have sex with his mother to cure him of his homosexuality. The heinous crimes are very traumatic for victims, and often go unreported.
The LGBT rights group said that they have received at least 15 corrective rapes reports in the past five years, and they are certain that there are many more unreported cases.
In many neighborhoods in the country, homosexuality is prohibited. Gay sex remains a criminal offense and is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
