According to Premium Times, the bill seeks to make changes to Section 4 of the Same-Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act 2013 by inserting a new Sub-clause 3 that reads:

“(1) Cross—dressing whether done publicly prohibited.”
“(2) A person shall be deemed to have committed the offence publicly where it is published or displayed publicly notwithstanding that it was committed privately or in any place that would have ordinarily been described as private.
“Provided that this section of this Act shall not apply to cross dressing in the course of a stage play or in any bona fide public entertainment.”

However, reported that he disappointed a lot of people after he showed up at an event in simple jeans and a top he has worn repeatedly.

In the video shared, the people around whipped out their phones to record Bobrisky's arrival at the event, but others on social media were not having it.
