Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Romania may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents.
Romania is generally socially conservative with regard to the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender citizens.
In 1948, this "public" homosexuality was considerate by court, that it include all situations whatever public or private if "provoking scandal", thus homosexuality became de facto illegal.
In the new Penal Code of the Romanian People's Republic, old Article 431 toughens penalties to a minimum of 2 years and a maximum of 5 years.
Influenced by anti-gay legislation in totalitarian fascist and communist states, the Romanian Penal Code criminalized homosexuality in the country for the first time in 1937.
This Code (as result of public debate on sexuality) banned public homosexuality only (Article 431 penalized "acts of sexual inversion committed between men or between women, if provoking public scandal").
Both regions were annexed to Romania after the World War I, so Romania created a new national Penal Code.Furthermore, LGBT communities have become more visible in recent years, as a result of events such as Bucharest's annual pride parade and Cluj-Napoca's Gay Film Nights festival.
