Same-sex adoption: Legal from Jun 26, 2017 to now.
On 31 March 2016, Federal District Court struck down Mississippi's ban on same-sex couple adoptions. On June 26, 2017, the United States Supreme Court reversed an Arkansas Supreme Court ruling that allowed a law listing parents by gender on birth certificates to stand. The new SCOTUS ruling allowed both same-sex spouses to be listed on birth certificates. These court rulings made adoption by same-sex couples legal in all 50 states. States can however require couples to be legally married before adopting.

Censorship of LGBT Issues: State-enforced from past to now.
Censorship of LGBTQ+ issues in Bangladesh is a significant concern. The country's approach to LGBTQ+ rights is restrictive, and homosexuality is criminalized under Section 377 of the Penal Code. This has led to discrimination, persecution, and limited freedom of expression for the LGBTQ+ community. Civil society organizations have documented cases of censorship and restrictions on LGBTQ+ activism and advocacy.

Equal age of consent: Equal from past to now.
Yes, the age of consent in Bangladesh is equal for both males and females. It is set at 14 years old. This means that individuals who are 14 years or older are considered legally old enough to consent to sexual activities. However, it is important to note that engaging in same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Bangladesh for both males and females. It is always advisable to familiarize yourself with the legal statutes of the country to ensure compliance with the law.

Right to change legal gender: Legal, no restrictions from Jul 23, 2015 to now.
In Trentino Alto Adige, Italy, it is possible for trans individuals to legally change their gender on their official documents. In fact, Trentino Alto Adige is one of the most progressive regions in Italy when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights, and it was the first region in the country to recognize same-sex civil unions in 2016. Trans individuals in Trentino Alto Adige can change their gender on official documents by submitting an application to the court in the place where they live. The application must include a medical certificate stating that the individual has undergone gender reassignment surgery, as well as an expert medical opinion stating that the individual has a stable and long-term gender identity that corresponds to the gender they are seeking to change their documentation to. The court will then make a decision on the application, and if the application is approved, the individual will be able to change their gender on their official documents. It's worth noting, however, that not all Italian regions have such progressive legislation regarding gender identity, and it can be more difficult for trans individuals to change their gender on official documents in other parts of the country.
