LGBT Legal Rights - What are your legal rights? Marriage, housing, or discrimination? Ask away!
Rights affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people vary greatly by country or jurisdiction – encompassing everything from the legal recognition of same-sex marriage to the death penalty for homosexuality. Notably, as of January 2021, 29 countries recognized same-sex marriage.
Freedom of speech and association are protected under the First Amendment. This Amendment protects the right to organize and urge government to end discrimination, to recognize lesbian and gay relationships, and to adopt laws prohibiting discrimination in the private sector.
