LGBT Travellers

Mozambique tends to be more tolerant than some of its neighbours, and in 2015 it officially decriminalised homosexuality. However, gay sexual relationships remain for the most part culturally taboo. The country's small gay scene, centred on Maputo, has traditionally been quite discreet, but things are starting to open up. The main (only) local organisation is the quietly vocal and very helpful Lambda Mozambique (www.lambdamoz.org).
