LGBT rights in Lytera
Laws concerning LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other gender identities, such as non-binary) rights in the Kingdom of Lytera are entirely equal in theory,but due to Lytera's uncodified constitution, most of these are verbal, traditional laws. The first written law to directly protect people from discrimination was only passed in 2020, though a law dedicated to focusing on LGBT right has been proposed, based on a bill in Lytera's mutually recognised nation of Essexia's recent laws on the subject.
While an official law hasn't been made specifically referring to gender rights, with the first written law to directly protect people from discrimination was only passed in 2020.
Lytera was the second nation in the Ruislip Tetrarchy to recognise LGBT relationships behind the Republic of Clubhausia. Due to the constitutions nature as uncodified, however, until 2020 no written law actually protected LGBT rights. This was rectified with the Act of Human Rights and Religion, though this mostly focused on Religious discrimination. A bill has been proposed to ensure more LGBT rights.
The majority of citizens are in favour of LGBT rights, however some oppose certain aspects such as recognition of same-sex couples and transgender rights.
Same-Sex Marriage is legal in Lytera.
Adoption and family planning
Adoption by same-sex couples is legal. The law also allows both partners to be identified on the child's birth certificate by the words "parent".
