The countries where the Anglican Communion is present in Asia are generally conservative in their attitudes to homosexuality. In most, homosexuality is illegal although India, China, Korea and Hong Kong are exceptions.
The churches of India, Pakistan, Ceylon and Bangladesh are less conservative than those in South East Asia, the Philippines, China, Korea and Myanmar.
Changing Attitude has been approached by bishops from the Indian churches for support in their campaign on behalf of Dalits, the untouchables, recognising an affinity with the experience of LGBT people.
In contrast, the Primates of Singapore have been leading figures in working to enforce conservative policy against LGBT people in the Communion.
