Homesexual activity is illegal in Burma, and can carry a penalty of up to 10 years in jail. This law, however, is not known to be regularly enforced. Culturally most Burmese people don’t demonstrate a lot of prejudice toward gay travelers, although homosexuality is considered to go against traditional Buddhist values. It is exceedingly rare to find an openly gay-friendly establishment in Myanmar, especially anywhere outside of Yangon.
