Recognizing LGBT+ Rights in Ukraine – Lessons from Iceland

01/02/2023 | Kyiv Post

In 2015, the Ukrainian parliament approved an anti-discrimination in employment law concerning sexual orientation and gender identity, and in 2016 Ukrainian authorities simplified the transgender transition process for transgender people and began allowing gay and bisexual men to donate blood. Nevertheless, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) persons in Ukraine still face legal challenges not faced by non-LGBT+ residents. LGBT+ persons, and households headed by same-sex couples are not entitled to any legal protections available to different-sex couples in Ukraine. Ukrainian law does not set specific rights for civil partners, meaning if an LGBT+ person fighting on the frontline is injured, their civil partner cannot visit them in hospital.
