History

Homosexual activity in Vatican City

?

Homosexual activity in Vatican City is legal.

Current status
Since 1929
Legal
The laws are based on the Italian Penal Code of 1929 (the time of the founding of the sovereignty of Vatican City). There are no criminal laws against non-commercial, private, adult and consensual same-sex sexual activity.

On October 13, 2014, the Vatican released a report that summarizes ongoing discussions about family issues among the top Catholic clergy. Totally unexpected, they moved the LGBT community across the world by showing a positive attitude towards the homosexuals. Though no decisions were announced, the clergy seemed keen to let the society reap the benefits of cohabitation and civil unions.
