History of law on homosexuality in Romania (Romanian)
The new Romanian penal code of 1864 did NOT criminalized homosexuality because it was based on French penal code of 1810. This code was imposed to Moldova in 1919 (before that, old Russian Art. 516 banned homosexuality). Only Transylvania (old Hungarian Art. 242 PC) and Bucovina (old Austrian Art. 129) still banned homosexuality. Both regions were annexed to Romania after the war, so Romania created new national penal code in 1936. This code (as result of public debate on sexuality) banned PUBLIC homosexuality only (Article 431 penalized "acts of sexual inversion committed between men or between women, if provoking public scandal"). In 1948, this "public" homosexuality was considerate by court, that it include all situations whatever public or private if "provoking scandal", thus homosexuality became de facto illegal. However, not until 1968, the new penal code was passed making homosexuality illegal official. This law was repealed in 1996, however new article 200 back to its old version and banned again "public" homosexuality only. This Article 200 was repealed in 2002.
