LGBT rights in Guatemala
|LGBT rights in Guatemala|
|Same-sex sexual activity legal?||Legal since 1871|
|No recognition of same-sex couples|
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Guatemala may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is legal in Guatemala, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex married couples.
In 1871 homosexuality was decriminalized in Guatemala. The age of consent is 18.
Discrimination and hate crimes go unpunished, especially crimes towards the transgender community.
