Free Empire of Highland LGBT citizens have exactly the same rights as heterosexual citizens regarding sexual activities and relationships. No laws specifically protect LGBT rights as the constitution establishes 'inaliable rights' for all.

The government does not issue marriage licenses not civil marriages to anyone. Regarding marriage as a matter between citizens and religious institutions. The government will honour all contracts between two or more adult citizens. It does not categorise one type of contract as a marriage.
