Gay Guide Belize

There are no regulations defining an age of consent for men, while that for women is 16. Homosexuality was de facto legalized by a court judgment from the Supreme Court. The churches tried to challenge this judgment. This petition was however rejected by the same court on the 4th October 2016. Even though in reality there are few cases of open violence against gay men, the gay community is completely hidden.
