Map of the Worst & Safest Countries for LGBTQ+ Travelers to Visit
Every year Asher & Lyric evaluate the places around the world that are the most dangerous (and safest) for queer travelers. "Instead of relying on hearsay and anecdotes from other travelers," the couple behind the travel site compiled over 350+ hours of research, to review 203 countries’ individual laws and gathered data from a variety of trusted international sources to create this definitive “LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index” to help travelers find the safest (and least safe) countries to visit.
Because of increased anti-LGBTQ+ legislation around the country, the United States has fallen in the rankings since last year. It is now the 24th safest country for queer travelers to visit.
