As of May 2018, homosexuality is legal in Mongolia, and there are laws to protect LGBTQ people from housing and employment discrimination. Same sex marriage is not recognized. The laws around gender change are ambiguous (i.e. it is not clearly legal or illegal). However, it is important to note that homosexuality was illegal and technically punishable by imprisonment in Mongolia until 2002.
- The LGBT Centre (Mongolia) The LGBT Centre, a non-membership, non-partisan, non-profit and non-governmental organisation, is the first and only LGBTI human rights organisation in Mongolia working on a wide range of issues pertinent to sexuality and gender minorities in Mongolia since its official registration in December 2009. The mandate of the organisation is to build capacity of all relevant actors and institutions, both public and private, to facilitate substantive enjoyment of human rights by all members of the LGBTIQ community in Mongolia through sensitisation, information sharing, curriculum development, training provision, building networks and communities of practice and through promotion of corporate social responsibility where relevant, to end discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression. The Centre's successful policy advocacy strategy led to the outlawing of discrimination as a criminal offence under the new Criminal Code of 2015, prohibition of discrimination in crucial health sector laws and proposed new Labour Law, with protected grounds including sexual orientation, gender identity and health status.
