What is the best place to be gay in Europe?

The best and worst places to be LGBTI in Europe have been revealed.

Malta is at the top of the 2016 Rainbow Index, compiled by ILGA-Europe, thanks to their pioneering laws on transgender and intersex equality.

The UK, as a whole, has fallen from first to third place in a ranking of 49 European countries, with a score of 81%.

All countries were ranked from everything from marriage equality to being able to hold Pride without fear of state obstruction to adoption rights.

Scotland, according to The Equality Network, would be top of the chart if it had been counted apart from the rest of the UK. They said they had been held back on trans and intersex rights, as well as Northern Ireland holding out on refusing to give same-sex couples marriage equality.

Azerbaijan, Russia, Armenia and Turkey are at the bottom of the list.

ILGA-Europe executive director Evelyne Paradis said: ‘The countries who are on this upward curve tend to be the ones who have protected people from discrimination on grounds of gender identity, or legislated to protect the bodily integrity of intersex people and who have ingrained this change in everyday measures such as equality action plans.’

  1. Mr. Russell have you read this sentence from the article: ” Scotland, according to The Equality Network, would be top of the chart if it had been counted apart from the rest of the UK” ? 😉 <3
