Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Senya enjoy almost equal status as heterosexual citizens in the nation.

Article 69

Article 69 prohibits all forms of sexual intercourse from being performed within Senya. This law applies equally for both heterosexual and homosexual sex.

Marriage

Senya did not have any marriage laws when the nation was founded, though in November 2010 marriage was restricted to being between humans after one Senyan tried to marry a cat. Senya sees it as a human right to marry whoever they like. However, religions in Senya can be forced to perform same-sex marriage.

Discrimination

In an agreement following some homophobic comments intended as banter made by government officials, Homophobic speech became illegal in January 2014, making it the first type of speech to be forbidden by the Senyan government.
