Austrasien
No No No No No No No
Never legalized Never legalized Never legalized Never legalized Never recognized Never legalized Never legalized
While laws against "Sodomy" and other sexual vices have existed in Austrasia since the middle ages particularly severe laws prohibiting homosexual behavior were adopted under the Austrasian State and all subsequent efforts at liberalization have been blocked by social conservative interests. Homosexuality is however no longer considered a serious crime in modern Austrasia and the laws are rarely, if ever, enforced against individual gays or lesbians who lead otherwise normal lives. But there is no recognition of same sex unions, no eligibility for same sex couples to adopt, no legal avenue for gender reassignment and a conviction for homosexual activity is grounds for being stripped of state office. Performing gender reassignment surgery or providing hormones for the same purpose is still considered a serious crime.

Estovnia
Partial Yes Yes Partial Partial Partial Partial
The state does not involve itself in the lives of its citizens, instead leaving things like the legality of homosexuality up to the holds and jarldoms. Typically, local judicial services don't arrest nor prosecute those performing same-sex acts. The "Right to Freedom of Expression" is granted to all Estovnian citizens, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. Estovnia has a policy of "Don't ask, don't tell" regarding servicemen and women. Despite the passing of the Equal Right's Act in 1943, the case has thus far only been applied to cases regarding race, religion, and gender. Various holds have laws permitting or outlawing the discrimination of homosexuals. Currently, only the Rift completely outlaws the discrimination of homosexuals. Marriages, or civil unions, are recognized on a common law basis and as such, there are no laws prohibiting a civil union between homosexuals. Legalized by referendum in 2003 Mikkelsen v. Ostergärd (1977) made it unconstitutional for any confederal laws to be passed legalizing or outlawing transsexualism. Nearly every jarldom requires the thon to be diagnosed with gender identification disorder.

Prestonia
Yes Yes Yes Yes Partial Partial No
Criminal statute not strictly enforced since 1920s, removed from Criminal Code 2014 Enshrined in 1949 Constitution Military makes no distinction between homosexual and heterosexual servicemen; sexual relations may be punished if deemed "contrary to the good order and discipline of the Imperial Armed Forces," though this applies to any such relations. As of 2014 Criminal Code revision State does not conduct civil marriages, and requires a solemnizing statement from a member of the clergy (of any faith) to register a marriage as valid for demographic, legal and taxation purposes. As most faith groups do not consider same-sex union valid, options for same-sex couples are limited. Most governmentally-run or funded orphanages and foster centers will require, with rare exception, that prospective adopting parents be married. Sexual reassignment surgery is available but is not covered under the Ministry for Public Health. State does not recognize changes of gender as valid.

Sodomy was punishable by death within the Papal Republic until 2014 when it was changed to life imprisonment, in late 2015 the law was changed again to a substantial fine (the percentage rate of the fine is determined by the criminal's income - the rates will usually bankrupt the criminal) and the spreading pro-homosexual material including pornography is punishable by a large fine. All laws regarding the complete repression of the LGBT community can be found in the Faith Protection Act, however the different sections of the LGBT community face different sentences, members of the transexual community are declared 'spiritually and mentally' unstable and institutionalised.
