Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Piauí, Brazil enjoy many of the same legal protections available to non-LGBT people. Homosexuality is legal in the state.

Recognition of same-sex marriages[edit]

  • On December 14, 2012, the Court of Piauí started granting same-sex couples marriage licenses through all notaries statewide, thus ending a long struggle for marriage equality in state. Now, couples don't need to have judge's approval to get married. This change was published officially in the 'Diário do Justiça' of this state on December 17, 2012.[1]
