Both male and female homosexual acts are legal in Guinea-Bissau, though transgender rights are not known.[1] Male and female homosexual acts were previously illegal.[3]

In December 2008, Guinea-Bissau was one of 66 nations to sign a declaration at the United Nations supporting decriminalization of homosexuality and transgender identity.[2]

In line with most other former Portuguese African colonies, Guinea-Bissau is reported to be one of the most tolerant countries in Africa towards gays and lesbians.[4]
