Northern Cyprus Decriminalized Homosexual Relationships

Written by 

Northern Cyprus



Homosexual relationships have been decriminalized for already several years in the Republic of Cyprus but Northern Cyprus, territory which belongs to Turkey since 1974, continued to regard them as criminal. A few days ago, the Parliament of Northern Cyprus finally decriminalized same-sex relationships!

In Europe, there remained nothing any more but one territory criminalizing homosexuals relationships: Northern Cyprus. From now on, it is just a bad memory.

Of course, all is not perfect yet considering what happens in Russia but I am really glad for the Turkish Cypriot LGBT community.
