I like in England, so can't comment on what it's like to live in another country - but when I've been on holiday to places like New York, Croatia, Ireland, Spain etc. I've had no issues and generally felt safe. Perhaps that because I've happened to go to relatively safe countries. There are plenty of countries that I wouldn't go to, not openly LGBTQ+ and/or with my partner though to be honest

I've used this before when thinking of where I want to go on holiday/travelling - such a shame I feel the need to but yeah

I know, it's really upsetting. Why can't people just be treated like people regardless of gender, race, religion, sexuality? :erm:

I'd love to see some sort of youtube thing where a gay male couple visit each of those countries and document their experiences and also try to do challenges ... like "blowing a kiss to the Iraqi Armed guard" ... or having sex outside the pakistan prime minister's house at midnight ..and stuff

If any gay person wants to make a popular youtube channel and go viral this is your ticket...!

It's an interesting idea, but the people would most defintely get put in jail and/or get attacked.

i'm pretty proud of my home country (Canada) in the sense it's pretty progressive in acceptance of LGBTQ+ individuals and their rights compared to other countries. i mean, i remember my hometown had its first gay mayor ages(!) ago and it was hardly a big deal. when my first bisexual (or maybe lesbian :curious:) friend started dating someone of the same sex no one batted an eyelash. also proud to say we had same-sex marriage over 10 years before the US and the UK. oh yeah, you can choose third-gender on your passport for non-binary/trans people and we have laws in place about public persons not discriminating against non-binary/trans people by refusing to use their pronouns in a public capacity (very controversial indeed).

In my home country it looks like you'd get 10 yrs prison and hard labour :dontknow:

Am fortunate to have lived in the UK my whole life but https://www.queeringthemap.com/ is a wonderful resource that shows just how diverse and varied the LGBT+ population is and how we aren't going anywhere :pride:
