LGBT rights in Armenia

Homosexuality has been legal in Armenia since 2003. However, even though it has been decriminalized, the situation of local lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens has not changed substantially.

Homosexuality remains a taboo topic in parts of Armenian society. There is, moreover, no legal protection for LGBT persons whose human rights are violated regularly.

Many fear violence in their workplace or from their family, and therefore, do not file complaints of human rights violations or of criminal offences.
