As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it can sometimes be difficult deciding where to go on our next holiday. Unlike our heterosexual counterparts, we often have to check if our chosen destination would be safe i.e. can we be imprisoned or is it safe to hold hands in public?
That’s why we’ve devised the following travel map – to make finding this key information as easy as possible.
LGBTQ+ Travel Map
We’ve categorised each country too based on the current law in each respective country (which you can see in the key) and you can find specific information about each territory by hovering over each location with your mouse. This includes key information like whether public displays of affection are ok and what you can expect in that country.
You can zoom in and out to see more detail on the travel map as needed using the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ icons in the top left corner.
We’ve done our best to fact-check the information here, but it is possible that as laws change some updates may have been missed. If this is the case, please do let us know and we will of course update this for you. Our aim is to continue to provide correct and up-to-date information to help our community when deciding where to go on their next big adventure.
We hope you find this travel map useful. Happy Travelling!
This key should explain the colour-coding behind our travel map.
Please note, the chart below is only a guideline as there may be other nuances that have affected the colour we gave to each country beyond whether or not they accept gay marriage etc.
|Dark Red||Death, life imprisonment or torture|
|Red||Imprisonment, illegal to be gay, no expression of identity|
|Orange||Same sex union not recognised, little to no recognition|
|Yellow||Civil union, little recognition|
|Light blue||Civil unions|
|Light green||Gay marriage recognised|
|Green||Gay marriages legal and performed|
