Dear All,

In the ILGA website it states that male-to-male relationships are "illegal" which in fact is wrong. Homosexual relationships have been decriminalized in PerĂş since 1921 and the law makes no distinction on the legality of a homosexual relationship between males and females. No consensual relationship between adults is illegal. There is a total absence of any legally-recognized union aside from the 'traditional' marriage between one man and one woman, where a long way still needs to be walked, but a "relationship" per se is LEGAL.I would appreciate it f you could correct the data accordingly in the website. Moreover, the laws regarding service in the armed forces were revised in 2009.

Lastly there are laws which prohibit ALL forms of discrimination for sexual orientation and transexual individuals can change their names and gender on legal documents through a legal process and application. While it may be true that the laws regarding discrimination for sexual orientation may just be de jure as opposed to de facto, the fact is that they exist. Consequently, this would need to be updated as well in the ILGA map.

Many thanks!
