Private, adult, consensual and non-commercial homosexual acts have been legal in Guam since a reform of the criminal code in 1979. No laws explicitly address harassment or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, and same-sex marriage is not legally recognized. Since the 1990s, there has been a visible LGBT social scene, with a handful of nightclubs and social functions organized locally.

In 2009, a measure was introduced into the Guam Legislative body that would have given same-sex couples some of the same legal rights and responsibilities as opposite sex married couples.
