Homosexuality lawsEdit

The laws regarding homosexuality in Djibouti are vague and can sometimes be confusing, but it is generally understood that homosexuality is de facto illegal. [1]

Most people interpret the Constitution of Djibouti as decriminalizing homosexuality, but the government tends to adhere to Islamic law more than constitutional law, rendering homosexuality illegal.

Gay life in DjiboutiEdit

Because of a largely homophobic Muslim majority, homosexuals are not able to have much in way of a social life. If a gay individual in Djibouti wishes to pursue their orientation, they must do it in secret, to avoid oppression from the government, or people in general. [2]

NotesEdit
