The Seychelles has Decriminalised Homosexuality



The Seychelles has decriminalised homosexuality. 

The country’s National Assembly voted 14 to 28 in favour of decriminalisation with half abstaining and 4 members absent.

Homosexuality had been illegal in the Seychelles since 1955 and carried punishment of up to 14 years in prison. 

Although, The Gay Times has reported that this was rarely acted upon.

This is fantastic news both for the LGBT community in the Seychelles and for LGBT tourists.

We're hopeful that this will be the first of many more inclusive laws to pay in the country.
