Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) rights in the Republic of Suntrain are very liberal and are seen as the one of the most progressive in the micronational community. Since independence, family rights such as same-sex marriage and adoption, as well as discrimination protection have been assured not only to the LGBT community, but also to the wider Queergender and Intersex communities. As well as the Government of Suntrain, ruled by the liberal and progressive Socialist Party, recent polls have shown that over 90% of Suntrainien citizens are accepting towards w:LGBT persons, as most citizens are under the age of 20. Although no same-sex marriages, or opposite sex-marriages for that matter, have been completed, the Patriarch of the Suntrainien Orthdox Church, Leo Crnogorcevic, who is also the president, has issued a statement confirming that same-sex marriages are welcome and will be able to be performed by the Church.
