Constitution limits marriage and de facto unions to one man and one woman
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Paraguay may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity is legal in Paraguay, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for all of the same legal protections available to opposite-sex married couples.
There is no legal recognition of same-sex couples. Since 1992 article 51 of the constitution limits marriage and de facto unions ("uniones de hecho") to one man and one woman. In July 2010, organization "SOMOSGAY" announced their intentions to submit a same-sex marriage bill to parliament.
