LGBT Travellers

Public attitudes towards homosexuality remain generally negative. In spite of this, Romania has made some legal progress towards decriminalising homosexual acts and adopting antidiscrimination laws.

  • There is no legal provision for same-sex partnerships.
  • Bucharest remains the most tolerant city in the country, though here, too, open displays of affection between same-sex couples are rare.
  • The Bucharest-based Accept Association ( is an NGO that defends and promotes the rights of gays and lesbians at a national level. Each year in June the group helps to organise the six-day festival Bucharest Pride, with films, parties, conferences and a parade.
