Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Andorra may face some legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents.
Civil unions, which grant the benefits of marriage, are recognized.
Laws against homosexuality
Homosexuality was decriminalized in 1790. Homosexuality is legal according to the Penal Code of 2005.
The age of consent is equal at 16, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender.
Recognition of same-sex relationships
Since 2005, it has been possible for same-sex couples to register their partnership under the name "Stable Union of a Couple".
Adoption and family planning
In Andorra, same-sex couples have both the right to full joint adoption and to adopt their partner's children (step-child adoption).
Anti-discrimination laws cover sexual orientation and thus, discriminating against homosexuals is illegal.
Blood donation issues
Men who have sex with men (MSM) are not allowed to donate blood, although it is against International Conventions.
