Here are the 71 Countries Where Being Gay Is Illegal

There are still countries where being gay is illegal. Unfortunately, yes.

While you might be able to find gay cities in countries and places around the world, there are still 71 countries that criminalize being queer. In eleven of those countries, officials can execute people for being LGBTQ+. If you’re planning to travel this summer, you need to know which countries are unsafe for LGBTQ+ travelers.
In some countries, it’s illegal to be gay, while in others, it’s illegal to have same-sex sex. Either way, being part of the LGBTQ+ community can be very dangerous. There are parts of Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, and Iran where those who are gay are put to death.
