Despite Caudonia being an egalitarian society in terms of LGBT rights, different political parties have differing opinions on rights.
Social Democratic Party
The Social Democratic Party promotes LGBT rights and passed the LGBT Rights Act in Caudonia.
The Caudonian front all mostly agree on LGBT rights, however those in the party have a decency to respect those in the LGBT community.
Ned Fram specified that ‘[sic] Me and the Caudonia Front (...) do not tolerate a speck of Transphobia in the micronational community’
The Christian Union are anti-LGBT.
