Over the years The Sohnland has become more open to LGBT acceptance as its people grow to understand those who are LGBT better. Eventually leading to the sole ruling Nationalist Party passing legislation deregulating protecting LGBT rights within its borders. Although the Sohnlandic government is accepting of LGBT people, a large portion of the population still holds views against its legalisation. Today. The Sohnland only retains some regulations on the right to change genders, with neopronouns still being unrecognised.
