Almaty - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

I believe so, we have a number of LGBT staff among Americans and locals, i haven’t heard of oppression or discrimination. - Sep 2023

No. Kazazkhs are very discriminatory against LGBT, although gay clubs do exist they are very much underground. - Aug 2015

I don't know, but I imagine it's not good. That's generally not tolerated in the countries of the former Soviet Union. - May 2012

I would guess it's OK, but I don't think there would be a lot of tolerance for open affection between same-sex couples. - Mar 2008
