Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Libya face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Libya.
Laws against homosexuality Edit
Living conditions Edit
Due to both legal and social reasons, many homosexuals decide to stay in the closet. Many emigrate from Libya to live in more liberal places like the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, France or the United States.
