VTV.vn - Just more than a decade ago, homosexuality wasn't accepted widely in Vietnam.

There was discrimination against the LGBT community because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. However, things have changed. Vietnam has seen a radical change in protecting LGBT rights over the last decade. 

The support of ministries as well as iSEE clearly shows that the LGBT issue is becoming more and more salient in Vietnam, and that more and more officials and individuals are beginning to see the importance of empowering this community. The LGBT community is excited for more big changes in the next few years as the new Law on Gender Change is being crafted by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to protect the rights of transgender people. The law is set to be submitted to parliament for review in 2019 at the latest.
