Pressure needs to be put on Guyana, Jamaica, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Barbados and St Lucia to clear the western hemisphere of homopobia and pass discrimination protection throughout the US.

Guyana is quite gay-friendly in reality, even though the laws on the books saw otherwise. Of course, that’s not an excuse for the outdated laws to exist, and I do think they will be one of the next countries to decriminalize homosexuality.

There is no shortage of gay, lesbian and bisexual people in Muslim countries as much as anywhere else, and people fighting for their equality there deserve support.

R11 - gay marriage and gay adoption aren’t allowed in those countries.
A country can get super dark blue for “constitutional protections” yet not allow gay marriage or same sex adoptions.

Most, if not all of those in the darkest red category are completely hell holes anyway. I will say, that I'm disappointed in Bhutan (not in the darkest category, but close enough). I've always wanted to travel there...despite the $200-$250 USD daily fee.
I wouldn't mind only hitting Nepal, I guess.

The political and cultural fetishization of Muslims in the West has created such a high degree of reality disconnect that despite homosexuality being socially abhorrent, a crime and a death sentence in 56 Muslim countries, posters like R10 continue to rationalize support for homo-hating cultures. And on a gay board.

R30 I get your point, but what I think R10 is trying to say is we should support LGBT people who have the great misfortune to be stuck in Islamofacist regimes, not support Islam itself. Islam is the problem, rather than the people as such, and is the reason for many of the homo hating cultures in the world - but not all, Russia being a case in point.
Palestine in particular though is an absolute living hell for LGBT people, with extreme persecution and beatings, honour killings etc

R33 thank you for being able to read. Yes, that's what I meant. In even the most homophobic and intolerant cultures, queer people exist and someone's trying to make a difference, often at great cost. They should be the ones that get support.

R33 R39 Part of that Western fetishization includes the absurd attempt to separate Muslims from Islam. As if the foundation of Muslim culture, its raison d'etre, can be easily dismissed or ignored, has little or no influence on the daily lives of 1.7 billion Muslims.
It is again that reality disconnect that creates the ludicrous phenomenon of gay men on a gay board supportive/defensive about Muslim cultures. Doing so does not support "LGBT people who have the great misfortune to be stuck in Islamofacist regimes", it is tacit support for those homo-murdering regimes and Muslim populations that persecute them.

The problem with that map is that it looks solely at laws, not the realities of LGBT peoples who live there.
LGBT are socially and legally repressed in Russia and Poland, for example, but the map says no laws against gays.

Again for the literal minded like R40, no one is defending "Muslim cultures," we're discussing the fact that even in the most oppressive regimes and societies, LGBT people exist and someone's trying to do the right thing and those people should be supported however possible for these societies to progress. The alternative is to throw thousands of people who are already suffering to the wolves and letting them be persecuted and killed. The fact that you think having sympathy for people living under those conditions is TACIT SUPPORT for those very conditions is beyond illogical.
