Gay Guide Luxembourg

The age of consent for heterosexuals as well as homosexuals in Luxembourg is set at 16 (Penal Code Article 372 to 378 from 1992). In addition a partnership law came into force in November 2004 in which gay couples in Luxembourg can register their partnership. This "Déclaration de Partenariat" does not imply marriage rights, but simply a registration of the partnership with tax and retirement benefits. The two most important posts have been held by gay politicians since December 2013. Xavier Bettel, who lives in a registered partnership, holds the office of prime minister, while Etienne Schneider is Luxembourg's new deputy prime minister. Gay marriage was introduced in summer 2014, with gays and lesbians granted comprehensive adoption rights at the same time. Luxembourg has a small gay scene, concentrated in the attractive capital city.
