Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Montenegro may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are legal in Montenegro, but households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex married couples.

Laws against homosexuality

Montenegro decriminalized homosexual sex in 1977. The age of consent legislation was equalized in 1977. Homosexuals are not banned from military service.

Recognition of same-sex relationships

There is no legal recognition of same-sex couples. The constitution bans same-sex marriage.[1]

Living conditions

Gays and lesbians may face discrimination and harassment in Montenegro. The gay scene is very small. Anti-gay attitudes are deeply ingrained.
