Find Out the Countries Where Gay Men are The Happiest
Being gay is still considered a criminal in roughly one-third of countries worldwide and even punishable by death in seven countries. But other places in northern Europe are very accepting of homosexuality based in a new survey.
Planet Romeo, an Amsterdam-based dating site, collaborated with the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in Germany to carry out an online survey of 115,000 gay men around the world. The researchers combined rankings on public opinion, public behavior and life satisfaction – how gay men feel about society’s view on homosexuality, how gay men feel they are treated by other people, and how satisfied gay men are with their own lives, respectively – into one worldwide ranking on gay happiness.
Coming in at the top of the list as the country where gay men are the happiest is Iceland, followed by Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Uruguay, Canada, Israel, Netherlands, Switzerland and Luxembourg. The highest Asian country comes from Thailand, which ranks 16th on the list while the United States ranks 26th.
The 10 worst countries where gay men are the least happy are Kazakhstan, Ghana, Cameroon, Iran, Nigeria, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda – the worst of them all.
