Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Littland have evolved significantly over the course of the last decades.

After the Littish Civil War, many progressive rights, such as decriminalization of same-sex relations and right to freedom of expression and identity were protected under the 1913 Constitution. When the 1986 Constitution was being drafted, further LGBT protections and rights were included, such as being able to openly serve in the military and gaining protections against discrimination. In 2008 same-sex unions were legalized and the 2015 Equality Act made same-sex marriage legal in Littland, as well as allowing gender change following surgery.

Many LGBT people in Littland still face social discrimination and even exclusion and several interest organizations exist who lobby for better rights and protections, notably for transgender individuals.
