Legalized in 2005, but not prosecuted since 1905 Never against the law, but explicitly protected in the 1978 Assurances of Dignity Act Don't Ask Don't Tell ended in 2013, but when on deployment with Levantine Union missions, it is observed Anti-discrimination laws put into effect in the 1978 Assurances of Dignity Act. Enforcement of private sector is strict, but enforcement of the Levantine Catholic Church is lax which is problematic as the Church runs most of the social programs in Burgundie Legalized in 2005, but not prosecuted since 1905 Marriage is a religious institution and is not legally regulated. Civil unions were adopted in 1994 as a non-religious but legally recognized union. Legally, all marriages are civil unions, but the inverse is not true. Since the Levantine Catholic Church, and most other major churches in Burgundie do not recognize same-sex marriages, they are rare, but not outlawed. Same-sex couples are not legally banned from adopting children, but since most adoption agencies are administered by the Levantine Catholic Church, adoption is impossible. Burgundians are not legally banned from changing their sex or gender, but since most hospitals are administered by the Levantine Catholic Church, such surgeries are unheard of. Some wealthy individuals seeking sex changes or gender reassignment have gone overseas.

Neither federal nor state penal codes mention homosexuality or sodomy, as it is a religious offense that lies outside of the scope of secular law, and hence the preserve of religious bodies under the Constitution. However, Pederasty, defined as sexual activity between a male twenty or older, and a male under the age of twenty, is a distinct offense treated more harshly than other forms of criminalized sexual conduct. Most media distributed on airwaves, by theatrics, in film, via the internet, or in print must be declared nihil obstat (free of error regarding faith and morals) by the Levantine Church before it can be approved for release. Hence, content promoting homosexual or otherwise deviant behavior does not enter the public sphere. However, media discussing homosexuality, portraying homosexuals, or depicting homosexuality for artistic purposes in a non-erotic fashion is generally permitted. Pride parades and other expressions of support for homosexuality, collective and individual, are illegal federation-wide as "contrary to public order and societal health" under the Sedition Act of 1975. No law has been established regarding the service of homosexuals et al. in the military. Accordingly homosexuals are free to serve, so long as they abide by the code of military justice and all aspects of federal and state law. Sexually deviant individuals benefit from the same protections as other citizens when faced with criminal attack. "Hate crimes" do not exist as a distinct offense under Latin law. Religious grievances are considered can be used to justify hiring and firing practices. Not recognized. Civil marriage does not exist in Latium, and marriage licensing and law are the domain of the Levantine Church and recognized minority religious organizations, none of which permit homosexual marriages. Religious bodies other than the Levantine Church are subject to some civil regulation, and under Latin law recognized churches are barred from sanctioning such unions. The Levantine Church has complete autonomy in regards to orphanages, and does not permit adoption by unmarried individuals, the only avenue available to homosexuals, and has total discretion in accepting and denying applications to adopt. Federal statute forbids other religious organizations from allowing adoptions by the unmarried. The Levantine Church, the primary provider of healthcare in Latium, considers gender dysphoria to be a mental disorder best treated with therapy. The state does not legally recognize gender transitions, and prohibits non-Church run hospitals from providing them.
