    For the lazy:

    In this map, the darker red a country is, the higher the percentage of people who believe homosexuality should not be accepted — the greener, the lower the percentage. In total, Pew had 37,653 respondents from 39 countries answer the question between March 2 to May 1, 2013.

    While interesting, I don't think this map unveiled anything surprising or unknown about how homosexuality is perceived in different parts of the world.

    I always wonder why my country, one of the most progressive countries in the world and the first to legalize marriage equality is not included in these kinds of studies. I think it has had a leading role in gay rights, I for one think it's interesting to see how the first country where gays could get married stand on gay rights and acceptance in comparison to other countries...

    How about loud yays for Australia, Argentina, and most of western Europeicon_question.gif


    I also noticed on the map that The Philippines are in the gay friendly green crowd. That is a very pleasant surpriseicon_biggrin.gif I also noticed that Poland is making serious progress in terms of gay equality in stark contrast to most of its eastern European neighbors.icon_biggrin.gif

    Australia? I heard Quuensland was pretty homophobic? Anyone care to clarify?

    Then, they have no 'green' on the entire continent of Africa, but seems to be a lot of 'undetermined' countries. I would be curious to see if Morocco or maybe some of the tourist savannah villages are somewhat accepting of it...being that I'm sure they see tons of gay White guys going on safaris lol.

    And the US is only as gay friendly as the perimeter of the gay neighborhoods. Get to know people, converge away from the cities...and you'll see people's 'true' colors.

    I had a guy at the gym tell me people so afraid to talk to guys they don't know for fear they'll look 'gay'. And I believe him

    American Catholics, especially the conservative old farts definitely need to take notes from the Filipinos on this one.

    Back to Queensland for the past few months now, after studying here years ago. Its realy depends of the people you are hanging with. But didnt have any problem so far. and met great people here in Brisbane (gay or not). There is absoluty nothing to complain about, compare to other countries (africa, middle east, etc...) Australia is a civilized country, where you can meet rough people sometime...can happen in US, europe, anywhere actualy.

    Err...he was fine when he left Canada. icon_confused.gif

    Regardless, no Irish person should be throwing stones at ANYONE over music, lol. Ireland's "gift" to the world sounds closer to claws on a chalkboard than what other people call music. icon_confused.gif It's no wonder you people are drunk all the time...you'd need to be. icon_lol.gif

    Uruguay info is not on the map. But it's along with Canada, the only country in the Americas to give full rights to homosexuals, including marriage, adoptions, anti discrimination-laws, etc.

    More info on each country > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_the_Americas
