Peshawar - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Not recommended for folks subscribing to alternative lifestyles. Peshawar is an ultra-conservative area. - Nov 2013

Homosexual acts are widespread in Pashtun culture, but there is no acceptance of a gay lifestyle here. Openly gay people are regularly murdered in Peshawar.

No problems that I saw. - Feb 2009
