  • Status is not correct "Military code: http://www.planalto.gov.br/ccivil_03/decreto-lei/del1001.htm Article 235: :” Pederastia ou outro ato de libidinagem Art. 235. Praticar, ou permitir o militar que com êle se pratique ato libidinoso, homossexual ou não, em lugar sujeito a administração militar: Pena - detenção, de seis meses a um ano.“ The country has a tipification of crime in the Armed forces called “Pederasty or other libidinous acts” that says that “libidinous acts, homossexual or not” cannot be practiced in places subject to military administration. As military law is often conducted by oficials that do not have law degrees, there is still punishment for LGBTQAI+ people in the Armed Forces based on that law and the typification of houses subsidised by the armed forces as “places subject to military administration” "
