LGBT rights in Bhutan
|LGBT rights in Bhutan|
|Same-sex sexual activity legal?||Illegal|
|No recognition of same-sex relationships|
There are reportedly no known cases of anyone having ever been charged with this petty misdemeanor. Little is known about gay life in Bhutan, as Bhutanese culture does not share the typical western view of heterosexuality and homosexuality. Some people have even called it an openly bisexual society, though this is disputed.
Bhutan Observer, one of the country's main weekly newspapers, has written quite a few articles on LGBT issues and these articles have elicited a lot of interest among the readers, enough to place them as some of the most popular articles for the paper.
Recognition of same-sex couples
Currently, Bhutan does not provide any form of legal recognition for same-sex couples.
