Gay Friendly Travel…And not so gay friendly

Do oyu travel to cities that are not friendly? It’s  kind of scary I think…..

Spartacus International Gay Travel Index
has come out with its listing of least ‘gay-friendly’ countries to
travel to and several Latin American countries are at the top of that
list. – Not surprising, because Catholic countries are usually less welcoming. 

138 countries were ranked and close to the bottom coming at #104 were
Honduras, Panama and Peru. VATICAN CITY,  Jamaica, Russia, Egypt, Dubai are there too. The ranking took into consideration a
country’s HIV-travel restrictions, religious stances on homosexuality,
anti-gay legislation enacted, crimes against homosexuals and the
countries stance on gay marriage.

Globally Sweden was deemed the most gay-friendly country, followed by Belgium, France, Netherlands and the UK.    Iran was
deemed the least friendliest toward gay coming in dead last.  Mexico
came in at #45 ahead of the USA which came in at #47.
