gay belarus

Gay-rights activist Ihar Tsikhanyuk says police dragged him out of the hospital where he was undergoing treatment for a stomach ulcer and took him to a police station, where he was repeatedly beaten, insulted, and grilled about his sexual life

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons in Belarus face legal challenges and abuse not experienced by non-LGBT residents.

Same-sex sexual activity was legalized in Belarus in 1994. However, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in Belarus are still severely limited and homosexuality remains highly taboo in Belarusian society. Many Belarusian people believe "homosexuality is a psychiatric illness" and many LGBT persons in Belarus tend to hide their sexual orientation. Those who are "out" face harassment, violence and psychical abuse.

Gay life is still largely underground and most Belarusians consider homosexuality a disorder. Homophobic attitudes, suspicions and prejudices are still very strong. According to a survey by the Belarusian Lambda League for Sexual Equality (Lambda Belarus) in April 2002, 47% of Belarusians think that gays should be imprisoned. In 2007 Information Center TEMA and organized a voting about the reaction of Gomel regional youth to sexual minorities. 47.6% had negative feelings to sexual and gender minorities, 10% wanted to criminalize homosexual relations.
