Madeira: Gay and Lesbian

Scenic mountainous landscapes, stunning wildlife and fabulous food

Madeira Gay and Lesbian

Madeira has become generally tolerant of homosexuality, which was only decriminalised in 1982, but in Madeira gay and lesbian activity is still very discrete. In Madeira’s capital of Funchal there are no specific clubs and bars for gays and lesbians, but it is worth checking online for gay-friendly accommodation.
