Gay Guide Norway

The age of consent in Norway is 16 years for all. Despite opposition from the Christian Democrats and the Progressive Party, on 11 June 2008 the Norwegian Parliament overwhelmingly adopted a bill opening marriage and guaranteeing parenthood for both spouses - giving lesbian couples the same access to "medically assisted reproduction" as heterosexuals. The Lutheran Protestant Church, to which almost 80% of Norwegians belong, has permitted homosexual marriage in church since 2015. The queer scene of the Kingdom concentrates in the cities of Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. This is wehere you can find designated gay bars. It is not is not unusual for clubs in smaller towns to have a weekly "gay and lesbian day". Since the social climate is gay-friendly, there is little fear of contact between gays, lesbians and heterosexuals, and mixed venues are gradually becoming the norm. Norway has an extremely interesting and professional magazine for gays: the popular news and leisure magazine "Blikk".
