How Gay-Friendly Is Mauritius?

Sodomy is illegal in Mauritius. A recent attempt to overturn the law was unsuccessful. So you could, in theory, still be arrested for having gay sex in Mauritius. But this draconian law is rarely imposed.

In fact, Mauritius has signed up to a joint UN statement calling for an end to anti-LGBT+ discrimination. Mauritius even has laws in place to protect LGBT+ people from discrimination in the workplace. Hate speech is also outlawed.

Irrespective of these laws, the culture is broadly conservative. Gay people are often treated like second-class citizens in Mauritius. Social attitudes are starting to change, as increasingly liberal laws give gay people more rights. But there is still a long way to go before gay Mauritians will feel comfortable to live openly.
