The German government is set to act on a measure to compensate gays who have been convicted of breaking an anti-homosexual law that was established in the 19th century according to Pink News.

The government has reportedly set aside 30 million Euros which is to be distributed to an estimated fifty thousand men who have been convicted of homosexuality.

Paragraph 175 was part of Germany’s criminal code until its repeal in 1994. Under this law, 140,000 men were incarcerated for sexual orientation and another 50,000 were prosecuted.
