LGBT Travellers

Homosexuality is not illegal in Gabon; however, overt displays of affection are taboo in this conservative Christian country.

In December 2008, Gabon co-sponsored and signed the nonbinding UN declaration on sexual orientation and gender identity calling for the global decriminalisation of homosexuality, one of only six African countries to do so. By 2011, however, Gabon voted against the resolution entitled Human rights, sexual orientation, and gender identity in the Human Rights Council.
