A Note for LGBTQ+ Couples

The Dominican Republic is one of the minority Caribbean countries that does not have laws against same-sex partnerships. That being said, LGBTQ+ people still do not enjoy the same rights and freedoms as everyone else, including protection against discrimination and the ability to be legally married.
