Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Chad may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is legal in Chad, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples do not receive the same legal protections as opposite-sex couples.[1]

Law regarding same-sex sexual activity[edit]

Same-sex sexual activity is legal in Chad. Such activity has never been criminalized.[1]

Gender identity/expression[edit]

The legal standing of transgender persons is unknown.

Recognition of same sex relationships[edit]

There is no legal recognition of same-sex couples.

Living conditions[edit]

The U.S. Department of State's 2010 Human Rights Report found that "there were no known lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations. There were few reports of violence or discrimination against LGBT persons, in large part because most such persons were discreet about sexual orientation due to social and cultural strictures against homosexuality."[2]
