Homosexual sex was legalised in Belarus in 1994, however Gay rights in Belarus are still severely limited. Homophobic attitude, suspicions and prejudices are still very strong. According to the survey held by Belarusian Lambda League for Sexual Equality (Lambda Belarus) in April 2002 47% of questioned Belarusians think that gays should be imprisoned. The activist group Belarusian Initiative for Sexual and Gender Equality works to improve LGBT awareness and acceptance.
