The situation of the LGBT community in Haiti is terrible. As a French colony that was, homosexual behavior is legal since 1791 and the issue has not changed since then, and they have not needed to change it because the vast majority of society does not accept sexual diversity and a law that prohibits vagancy is applied to transgender people. In the new millennium there have been some activities by the LGBT community, but in 2017 the Senate approved by majority a law that punished with 3 years in prison and $ 8,000 fine any type of marriage ceremony between people of the same sex, also for the people who help them to do so, as well as any type of promotion of homosexuality. Verbal and physical aggressions, murders and corrective violations, consented by the police. All because of religion, especially Catholic.
