LGBT rights in Gabon

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Gabon may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is legal in Gabon, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples.

In December 2008, Gabon signed the non-binding UN declaration on sexual orientation and gender identity calling for the global decriminalization of homosexuality, one of only six African countries to do so.
