For the first time, Tonga's Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex community will be calling on government leaders to revise legislation in order to protect LGBTI people.
The Tonga Leiti's Association has planned a national consultation with government leaders in December to petition for changes to the Criminal Offences Act.
The Act criminalises cross dressing and sodomy which can be punished with to ten years in prison.
The Association's project manager, Henry Aho, said religious leaders in Tonga want to see the legislation enforced.
"They feel like, with the Sunday law being reinforced, so to speak, with bakeries not being allowed to serve customers on the Sabbath, they believe that the next step for them is to re-awaken these laws so that the morale of the country is put in check," he said.
