10 Most Gay Positive Countries in the World

One of the things Canada prides itself on is being the cultural mosaic meaning everyone can maintain their individual identity within its society and be completely included. It’s interesting to see how Canada compares in this and other areas and I’ve explored this topic in posts like best country to livesmartest countries, the happiest countries, the  most peaceful countries, the most sustainable countries, the friendliest countries, the most charitable countries, the most prosperous countries, the best countries for quality of life, the best countries for business, the top countries for life expectancy, the best countries for working women, the best country for world travel & tourism, the best countries for human development, the top countries for Clean Capitalism, the best country for child well-being, the best countries from social progress, the best countries for higher education, the most popular countries, the least corrupt countries, the best countries for paid vacation daysthe countries with the best reputation, the best countries for global professionals, the best countries for ease of doing business, the best countries for starting a business, the best country for business and the best country for customer satisfaction.

Today, I’ll be adding to this list with the 10 most gay positive countries in the world based on responses from the Pew Research Center (PRC) study titled The Global Divide on Homosexuality. For this study, the PRC conducted surveys in 39 countries from 37,653 respondents from March 2 to May 1, 2013 and asked the simple question “should society accept homosexuality?”. The yes and no responses were then tabulated and the 10 most gay positive countries are featured below:

  1. 10-most-gay-positive-countriesSpain: Acceptance score 2013: 88%. Acceptance score 2007: 82%. Spain’s score increased 6% in six years.
  2. Germany: Acceptance score 2013: 87%. Acceptance score 2007: 81%. Germany’s score improved by 6%.
  3. Canada: Acceptance score 2013: 80%. Acceptance score 2007: 70%. Canada’s score increased by 10%.
  4. Czech Republic: Acceptance score 2013: 80%. Acceptance score 2007: 83%. The Czech Republic’s score decreased 3% in the last six years.
  5. Australia: Acceptance score 2013: 79%. Acceptance score 2007: N/A. Australia was not included in the data PRC provided for 2007.
  6. France: Acceptance score 2013: 77%. Acceptance score 2007: 83%. France’s score decreased 6%.
  7. Britain: Acceptance score 2013: 76%. Acceptance score 2007: 71%. Britain’s score improved by 5%.
  8. Argentina: Acceptance score 2013: 74%. Acceptance score 2007: 72%. Argentina’s score improved by 2% in the past six years.
  9. Italy: Acceptance score 2013: 74%. Acceptance score 2007: 65%. Italy’s score increased 9%.
  10. Philippines: Acceptance score 2013: 73%. Acceptance score 2007: N/A. The Philippines was not included in the data PRC provided for 2007.

South Korea’s 21% increase between 2007 and 2013 was the highest on the list. The Unites States’ acceptance score was 60%, which is up 11% from its 49% score in 2007.

The 2013 survey found that there was a broad acceptance of homosexuality in North America, the European Union and the majority of Latin America. Affecting these scores was a country’s affluence, as the more money a country had the more accepting they were of the gay community. Gender does not have an impact on the scores; however, age does, as younger people were generally more supportive than older people.

Hopefully the overall increases mean that perceptions are changing and people are becoming increasingly tolerant of others. I look forward to seeing these scores continue a steady climb.

  1. Unfortunately, these lists only scratches the surface of such a deep issues. I just came back from Spain and though it is true that people do accept/tolerate homosexuals…there is a lot of descrimination in the gay community itself.

    That said, I am surprised that Argentina is so far down the list as they legalize gay marriage.
