LGBTI status and/or conduct is criminalized in Lebanon, and LGBTI persons can face significant social stigma. Article 534 of the Lebanese Penal Code prohibits "unnatural sexual intercourse", an offense punishable by up to one year in prison. Although this provision has been interpreted in different ways by some Lebanese courts and prosecutions are rare, LGBTI adults have been charged, tried, and sentenced for engaging in consensual same-sex relations. Authorities have typically arrested LGBTI individuals for other minor offenses, and then subsequently charged them with violation of Article 534 when evidence of their LGBTI identity is found, often uncovered through searches of cell phones or other personal material. While prosecution is uncommon, short-term detentions do occur, which can expose individuals to discrimination and abuse.
