Nicaragua: Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people at risk in Nicaragua
In spite of positive initiatives across the Americas, Nicaragua continues to criminalise consensual same-sex sexual relations. Although to Amnesty International's knowledge no one has to date been prosecuted under Article 204 of the Nicaraguan Penal Code, it potentially criminalizes not only gay men, lesbians and bisexual people in same-sex relationships, but is vague enough to permit the prosecution of individuals for activities such as campaigning for LGBT rights or anyone providing sexual health information or services. Anyone imprisoned under this law would be considered by Amnesty International to be a prisoner of conscience.
