Gay Guide Gibraltar
The different ages of consent for heterosexuals and homosexuals have been brought in line in 2011 at 16 for both. Owing to a Supreme Court decision from 2013, politicians saw themselves compelled to adjust the discriminatory legislation. Parliament consequently passed laws enabling registered partnerships in 2014. The adoption regulations were also subjected to comprehensive changes, so that homosexuals are now able to adopt children. Since August 2016 the law amendments regarding gay marriage are in the legislative process. Gibraltar is full of history - whether Roman, Islamic, medieval Spanish or 18th Century British - from World War II with secret tunnels deep in the Rock, to charming colonial side streets, amazing views to the Mediterranean and Atlantic and a magical medieval Moorish castle perched on the Rock. A visit to Gibraltar is a must when in southern Spain or Morocco.
