Drinfeld showed that if G is a Poisson Lie group with corresponding Lie bialgebra g, then the isomorphism classes of Poisson homogeneous G-spaces are essentially in a 1-1 correspondence with the G-orbits of Lagrangian subalgebras in g g*. The main goal of this paper is to generalize this result to the quasi-Poisson case. We also study the behavior of quasi-Poisson homogeneous spaces under twisting. Some examples of quasi-Poisson homogeneous spaces and corresponding Lagrangian subalgebras are also provided.
