Gay Guide Bolivia

The Bolivian penal code does not mention homosexuality. The age of consent is 16 years old. Contravention of this law can lead to imprisonment of up to 5 years. A ban on discrimination has been in place under constitutional law since 2010. Bolivia is a typical Latin American country full of macho guys with deeply-held prejudices. The gay scene is quite small, so gay tourists should not have high expectations!
