Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?
It's better than many, not as good as some. I have never seen or heard of any open discrimination and there was recently a pride event. - Sep 2020
Yes. There is a supportive, welcoming urban community, and, in my opinion, discrimination is real but improving. - Aug 2020
Should be fine I would think. - Feb 2015
Unknown but there are no overt signs of gay friendliness. - May 2012
No, not at all. During the days when Russia controlled Mongolia, homosexuals were literally sent to Siberia. - Feb 2011
No. I am one of two people at the Embassy who are gay or lesbian. Mongolians do not think kindly (understatement) about homosexuality; the most educated Mongolian will keep their face still and tell you that it is a private matter not to be discussed. There appear to be more gay men than lesbian women in Ulaanbaatar. Mongolian women, especially those younger than 45, exhibit stylized hetersexual behaviour, especially in fashion. The traditional culture is very, very gendered. - Jan 2009
it"s a OK city for that. - Oct 2008
