Gay Guide Honduras
Consensual homosexual acts between males over 15 are permitted by law, but a prohibition of same-sex marriage and adoption has been anchored in the constitution since 2005. Attacks on transvestites is a frequent and re-occurring problem. There have been no efforts to create any anti-discriminatory regulations and police or military raids are often part of everyday life. This negative situation arose with the outcome of AIDS.
