The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community’s rights vary depending on the country they live in. While some countries don’t have issues about gender (giving equal privileges and rights), others are a bad and even dangerous place for them to be in (some persecute and even execute gays).
In a recent online survey conducted by Planet Romeo (an Amsterdam-based dating and community site and app) in collaboration with Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany, with 115,000 gay men all around the globe as respondents, 127 countries were ranked according to the best (HAPPIEST) places for gay men to live in.
The Philippines came in at No. 41 with 4,947 gay men taking the survey.
Let us look at the places where gay men feel welcome, secure, and accepted.
