Gay Guide Madagascar

The age of consent for homosexual acts is 21 and the prostitution of minors is prosecuted. There are no designated gay venues, but the Hilton and Mojo Club are popular meeting places for gays. Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world, located in the Indian Ocean. The uniqueness of the country is not only due to its diversity of species - among them the prominent native lemurs and chameleons - but also to the strong influence of Asian culture: the island, which was still uninhabited until then, was discovered and settled by Indonesian sailors in the 6th century AD. Meanwhile 18 million people live on Madagascar, which had been under French colonial rule for 164 years before its independence in 1960. Homosexuality is almost invisible here and more or less unknown. Since there are no legal regulations with regard to same-sex relationships, it is not illegal either. In addition, even in remote areas, there are men who wear women's clothes, but they are not considered homosexual.
