LGBT Travellers

Homosexuality is legal in the Republic. You will find interesting discussions, tips and contacts on anything gay in Cyprus at www.gay-cyprus.com.

In Northern Cyprus, homosexuality, which had long been officially banned, was decriminalised in 2010. However, you may still find an overall conservative attitude, and overt public displays of affection may be frowned upon. To date there are no organised support groups in the North, though there is a handful of gay forums, including www.turkeygay.net/cyprus.html.
