Spartacus Internationally Gay Guide has published its Gay Travel Index. The international travel guide for the gay community, which has been published on an annual basis for the last 40 years, informs its readers about the legal situation for gays and lesbians in each of the 128 countries listed in the guide. The editorial staff stands in regular contact with the Foreign Office, the foreign embassies in Germany as well as LGBT-(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-gender) activists from around the world.
And the winner is: Sweden!
With an index of 9 points and with it the maximum number of points possible, Sweden is at the top of the list. An exemplary anti-discriminatory legislation, gay marriage and adoption for gay couples make Sweden the most gay-friendly destination worldwide. Just behind Sweden: Belgium and the Netherlands which share the second place, each with 8 points, Iceland and Canada are ranked third with 7 points.
