Homophobia, discrimination and social exclusion are part of the day-to-day life of LGBTI persons in Honduras due to cultural background, religious fundamentalism and impunity. Discrimination, however, is not limited to the societal sphere; it is also practiced by governmental and institutional officials. Impunity and violence by civil servants limit the access of LGBTI persons to basic human and citizen rights and endanger their integrity and life.
