  Buggery Act 1533 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Buggery Act was adopted in England in 1533 during the reign of Henry VIII, and was the first legislation against homosexuals in the country.
It is sometimes suggested that the Act was introduced as a measure against the clergy, since the Act was introduced following the separation of the Church of England from Rome, though there seems to be no firm evidence for this.
Contravention of the Act, along with treason, led Lord Hungerford of Heyetsbury, to become the first person executed under the statute in July 1540, though it was probably the treason that cost him his life.

The Acts of Union 1536–1543 were a series of parliamentary measures by which Wales was annexed to England and the norms of English administration introduced in order to create a single state and a single legal jurisdiction, which is frequently referred to as England and Wales.
The Acts refer in particular to two acts of parliament passed in 1536 and 1543 during the reign of King Henry VIII of England.
The Acts were not popularly known as the "Acts of Union" until 1801, when historian Owen Edwards assigned them that name — a name which is misleading as the Acts are concerned with harmonising laws, not political union.

Buggery was made a felony by the Buggery Act in 1533, during the reign of Henry VIII.
The passage of the Human Rights Act 1998 has resulted in further broadening of the legality of homosexual acts, culminating, in 2001, under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 2000, with the homosexual age of consent reduced to 16 in England, Scotland, and Wales.
This age was lowered to 18 in the East in 1968 and the West in 1973, and all legal distinctions between heterosexual and homosexual acts were abolished in the East in 1988, with this change being extended to all of Germany in 1994 as part of the process of German Reunification.

In 1521, pursuant to a grant from Pope Leo X rewarding a book by Henry attacking Martin Luther and defending Catholicism, the royal style became "Henry the Eighth, by the Grace of God, King of England and France, Defender of the Faith and Lord of Ireland".
After the breach with Rome, Pope Paul III rescinded the grant of the title "Defender of the Faith", but an Act of Parliament declared that it remained valid.
In 1535, Henry added the "supremacy phrase" to the royal style, which became "Henry the Eighth, by the Grace of God, King of England and France, Defender of the Faith, Lord of Ireland and of the Church of England in Earth Supreme Head".

 Homosexuality
For instance, in England buggery was a crime under medieval canon law because it was banned by the Church.
The legalization and legal equality of homosexual acts, together with legal status for same-sex marriage and non-gender-specific civil unions is one of the major goals of gay rights activism.
However, not until 2003 were the earlier offences of buggery and gross indecency abolished so that gay sex was treated in the same way as heterosexual sex (previously it was illegal for gay sex to involve more than two people, or for anyone to watch).
