Yes. Anti-LGBT rhetoric is used to cause conflict amongst workers to distract them from their true enemy: capitalism.

Though the bulk of the rural Amerikaner and Hispanic population are rather conservative and religious, they're comparatively accepting of homosexuals and same sex relationships though their enthusiasm for many elements of LGBT culture is limited, this is in line with the more modest and self-effacing culture of rural people. Urban centres are more accepting of LGBT culture than rural communities.

LGBTQ folks are totally accepted in good ol' Skyhooked. Yeah, we admit it, there were times, when being one could be punished with burning at stake, but they are no longer, cuz the theocratic fascist authorities, which enforced such laws are sleepin' with fishes long ago after we had the anarchist revolution.

So, LGBTQ dudes, Skyhooked is open for business, so come and enjoy all we have to offer.

Yes. Lillorainen has practically no relevant history of considering homo-/bisexuality something there should be legal action, or at least a social stigma against. Same-sex marriage has been allowed and widely accepted for well beyond a millennium (recorded mentions thereof date back into the 7th century CE, but it is prudent to assume, that same-sex marriage couples have been around even way sooner). As a result of this long tradition of being an LGB (later extended to TQ+) accepting nation, it's beyond anyone in Lillorainen why this should be any different elsewhere.
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom (Very late update, 2020/08/30 - it's still going on ...)

Homosexual relationships are not criminal in Rafinha since 2003, however same-sex "marriage" is not recognized and around 70% of the country claim they are morally opposed to homosexuality. Only two of the three major political parties advocate for the legalisation of Same-Sex "Marriage", however these two parties only hold a combined 35/436 seats in the National Assembly. The Catholic Church yields significant influence in Rafinha and has consistently lobbied for Catholic values to be instated by the government. Since 1930, the dominant party in the country has been the National People's Union (formerly the People's Party) and their only times in opposition have been to the Labourist Party, who share their Catholic values in regards to the family. Hate crimes against LGBT individuals are common in rural areas and homosexuals are often scapegoated for sexual crimes by corrupt police officials when no suspect can be found. Based off of polling data it is unlikely that homosexuality will become tolerated by the majority of the population before 2050.

We don't accept homosexuality. Our national church forbids homosexuality and we have laws banning it and our cultural society doesn't like it. Any homosexuality is scents to one year in jail or fined 10,000 monies. Homosexuality marriage is illegal and there are no benefits.

There are laws in effect forbidding indecent acts between men. This is construed to mean carnal knowledge between men. There is no express prohibition against indecent acts between women, although whether such an act would fall under bestiality is debatable. Affection and fondness between persons of the same sex is entirely legal, although there is a taboo against displaying affection in public generally. Changing one's legally recognised sex is also not possible except for mistakes of fact.

Wallenvale is very accepting of LGBTQ individuals. In 1975, civil unions were made legal for same sex couples. In 1990, same sex marriage was made legal. The same year, discrimination against LGBTQ individuals was outlawed (with the only exception being religious institutions and organizations). Historically same sex relations have never been illegal but were largely frowned upon until the 1960s. Modern attitudes are generally accepting, with about 82% of the population having no problem with LGBTQ individuals. It is currently legal for LGBTQ individuals to;

- Marry.
- Adopt children.
- Sex change (both HRT and SRS) and change one's documents to reflect this change.
- Along with enjoying other civil rights that the rest of the population has.

TRANSLATION: Bozopolis has a high LGBTQ population and thus is very accepting of such, so they don't face any more legal restrictions than folks who aren't. Persecuting folks for being LGBT, if it doesn't result in legal penalties, still won't win you any favors with the general public.
People tend to assume that Entrance of the Gladiators by Julius Fučík is what that ever so famous circus clown theme is. And in a way, it is. Nobody would ever argue with you on this fact.
However, if you want to be an unlikable, pedantic jerk, the song actually known to be circus music would be a version composed for American woodwind bands (and later transcribed for fairground organs) titled Thunder and Blazes, published by Louis-Philippe Laurendeau.
Of course, this information is of absolutely no consequence to anyone.

═───╡❖╞────────═ THE LGBTQ IN EPHYRA ═────────╡❖╞───═
╞────────═ OFFICIAL DOCUMENT OF THE SPHERE OF THE INTERIOR ═────────╡




'LGBTQ' cannot be addressed as a block group in Ephyra due to the fundamental disconnect and contradiction between its various components and the different weight and viewpoint held by the Ephyral citizenry on both the mental state and physical actions associated with any one component part.

Ephyral attitudes towards sexuality, informed by a civic-focused culture of masculine martial dominance and feminine domestic docility, is highly accommodating of bisexual attitudes. For men to seek the sexual company of both women and men is not remarked upon as unusual, though a man must ensure he takes the active role in any relationship to retain his masculinity, and show moderation in the frequency of his sexual activities to demonstrate self-control and by extension of his power over his partner, the ability to govern others. In summary, a man in Ephyra faces no stigma for engaging in sex with another man, but he cannot be penetrated and retain social respect. The correct way for a masculine male to seek sexual gratification is to be the penetrating partner; his partner's sex is immaterial. Because of the threat to a citizen's masculinity, males of inferior status and younger age are selected to be the submissive sex partners of these enfranchised, self-controlled males. These lesser partners are seen as feminised, and little more than a source of their superior's pleasure.

Therefore one can see that the nature of male-male homosexuality is not straightforward, as the morality is dictated entirely by what physical and social position the individual finds himself in.

A similar but vaguer construct exists for women. This is a matter of greater social ambiguity because female-female sex is deemed 'unreal' as a consequence of the fact neither is a penetrative sexual partner. Greater skepticism does exist about whether females do truly desire other females sexually, with some leaning to acceptance and others to dismissal of the idea. However, assuming a woman's actions do not threaten her reputation of modesty and chastity, and accounting for the understanding that a female partner cannot get her pregnant and threaten the paternity of her husband over their children; for a woman to take a lover of the same sex from virtually any social class is not unheard of as a concept, but certainly is not the type of conversation the woman herself would partake in.

These homosexual expressions of sex and potential affection are not reflected institutionally, and because of the nature of marriage as a union of intent subject to recognition by one's peers, it's not practically possible for two males or two females to marry. A fundamental quality of a marriage is the approval of the familial fathers of the prospective groom and bride, who may either arrange the marriage or simply grant permission to a match selected by their children or grandchildren. A man can only marry a woman, and vice versa. To marry is also expected, and thus men who possess only an attraction towards men are still under a social and familial obligation to settle down and marry a young woman, consummate the marriage, and reproduce with her. Likewise, a young woman of lesbian persuasion must still marry a man and bear his children. Whilst Ephyral marriage can and does incentivise a close, intimate relationship between spouses to cement and solidify the marriage as an alliance and create a new formidable household in turn, no sexual intimacy is required beyond what is needed for child bearing.

It remains feasible therefore that a man may maintain a male sex partner if he so desires whilst married, although it is expected of citizen men that they'll set aside their female and male lovers both once married to focus on their new household - though this is not uniformly followed even by heterosexual men. Likewise, a lesbian woman might do her duty to her husband, and then in return for ignoring his selection of female lovers, be essentially free to discretely pursue a sexual relationship with a woman. The sole imbalance here however is that whilst the husband of a lesbian wife can with social approval seek to penetrate other partners extra-maritally with no fear of adultery unless his selected partner is an impermissible object of affection, such as another citizen's wife or daughter, a heterosexual wife to a homosexual husband would have no such outlet. A married woman being penetrated by a strange male commits adultery in all cases except for rape.

It should be noted that Common Selian, the language spoken most by citizens of Ephyra, do not have clear translations for the concept of homosexual and heterosexual, and thus there is no terminology with Ephyral nuance to be applied in discourse surrounding the topic that is even capable of highlighting the nature of LGBT. The man who seeks to penetrate is not distinguished by whether his preferred partner is a male or female, but instead the man who desires to be penetrated is identified by a pejorative slur indicating his effeminacy and degeneracy for desiring to be used as a woman. Likewise, words exist for women who take part in female-female activities but this refers solely to the participant of an action, and whilst it can be applied to the mentality as a whole, no proper translation of 'lesbian' truly exists. Therefore, it is not even practical for the concept of LGBT rights or identity to be furthered in Ephyra as the concept is completely beyond the scope of the language.

In short for LGB; there is situational social permissiveness on bisexual and homosexual activities, but no institutional capacity for marriage, and no linguistic identification of hetero and homosexual.

On the nature of T, no. There is no capacity in Ephyral consciousness for transgenderism. Even actions that feminise a man do not make him a woman in nature, only by role, and this is insufficient. To label oneself or 'identify' as the sex you are not is treated as a mental illness in either a sympathetic or a hostile light by citizens. Ephyral law does not recognise sex changes, and foreign transgender individuals will not be recognised as anything other than their biological sex.

The Ephyral have no active perception on the nature of 'Q' because no one understands what it is and how it differs from anything else previously mentioned. Though the capacity for LGBT discourse in Ephyra is linguistically limited, the social understanding maintained by citizens through observance in its contemporaries is one of disdain, and criticism of what appears to be a trend of narcissistic and hedonistic self-indulgence and a demand for attention by rebelling against perceived sexual norms, and agitating for rights they don't deserve in defiance of oppression they don't face.

The fact that Ephyral language does not possess words directly translated to homosexual and heterosexual does not eliminate the concept from their minds, nor prevent the citizenry from understanding trends abroad. Sexual dynamics are simply more nuanced to role and action rather than a mere desire, and the Ephyral remain perfectly capable of interpreting and making judgement upon the more radical elements of the LGBTQ+ idea, judgements which are overwhelmingly negative and critical.

Vampires are solitary creatures that don't have families like humans (the females die after reproducing). As such, the human social constructs of heterosexual monogamy and marriage don't exist for them. Neither are there any religions—a primary source of homophobia in humans. So LGBT individuals don't face any risks... at least not for their orientation.

But if you're a human who dares to venture into the Blood Realm, that's the least of your worries. This place is like hell on Earth, without the heat. Everything is out to get you, from the wildlife to the weather.

It's sort of a non-issue in Radiatia. The short answer is, the country is accepting of anyone's lifestyle choice as there's a strong belief that people should be able to do whatever they want with their own lives as long as they aren't harming others. (Radiatia also had one openly gay President.)

It doesn't matter if you're gay or straight, no one gives two craps what you do with you life and you can marry whoever you want as marriage is just a contract (and some states allow polygamy, and even let you marry your dog if you want to). With transgender people it's similar, although the federal government does not recognise trans people as being anything other than the gender of their birth, nor does it recognise the 9 million genders that some claim supposedly exist. But if you are of the age of legal majority (17 in Radiatia), and feel the urge to pop on a dress, get plastic surgery/take hormones and live as you were the opposite gender, no one will stop you or bat an eyelid.

Radiatia's position is that you won't be judged, and you can do absolutely anything you want with your life and your body - just don't expect any special treatment.
