Gay Guide Mozambique

In July 2015 Mozambique decriminalised homosexuality in its new penal code, making it one of a few African countries where same-sex relationships are legal. The revised code replaces a colonial-era clause outlawing homosexuality as "vices against nature". While people may be relaxed about homosexuality, many see promoting gay rights as an attack on cultural and religious practices. Same-sex relationships are still a divisive subject in a country where many people are either religious Christians or Muslims. Mozambique is one of the only three countries in Africa to offer any form of discrimination protections for gay, lesbians, and bisexuals, which have been in place since 2007.
