Despite there being a Supreme Court ruling that anti-sodomy laws are unconstitutional, 12 States still have anti-gay sex laws.

The states of Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah all have anti-gay sex laws on their books.

The laws most commonly know as anti-sodomy laws. It forbids both heterosexual and gay couples partaking in anal sex, regardless of consent.

Montana and Virginia repealed theirs after the Supreme Court ruling in 2003, which called the ban a violation of the 14th Amendment.

Before 1962 sodomy was illegal in every state and was punishable by hard labour or a long jail term.

The first State to remove criminal penalties for consensual anal sex was Illinois in 1962.
