Gay Star News reports:
A global survey of attitudes towards gays and lesbians has found a stark divide between attitudes in Europe and Africa – where even people in countries where homosexuality is not a crime think their communities are not welcoming of gays and lesbians. Only 28% of those surveyed around the world said they lived in a community that was welcoming of gays and lesbians. People in the Netherlands were the most likely to report their community was ‘a good place to live for gay or lesbian people,’ with 83% agreeing with that statement. Iceland was the next most gay friendly country, followed by Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The lowest scores? Only one percent of respondents in Senegal and Pakistan viewed their country as being gay friendly. I know which countries cross off my travel list for the year.
