LGBTQ+ Danger Index rates countries for both locals and visitors

Just came across a Guardian piece published a few weeks ago with some interesting findings from something called the LGBTQ+ Danger Index, which ranks the world's 150 most-visited countries using eight factors, including legalized same-sex marriage, worker protection and whether, based on Gallup poll findings, it is a good place to live. Sweden comes in first, followed by Canada, Norway, Portugal and Belgium. My adopted country Spain comes in at number 10, but my native country the USA is just…

How should travelers/travel industry respond to Brunei's barbarism against gays?

Many voices in the civilized world have been speaking out in horrified outrage at Brunei's new edict  decreeing death by stoning for gay sex, and numerous individuals and institutions joining a boycott. Should travelers and the travel industry/media join as well by not traveling to, working with, or covering Brunei, nor other entities associated with it such as the nine luxury hotels in the West owned by its sultan, such as London's Dorchester, the Plaza Athénée in Paris, and the Beverly Hills…

Pictures & pride: snapshots of gay life in Rio de Janeiro

With São Paulo hosting the world's largest gay pride, it's no surprise that there is a large and very proud gay community in Brazil.

  • The Daily Beast recently published a frightening look at the gay/lesbian predicament in Hungary under the authoritarian régime of Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz party - this past weekend re-elected for a fourth term. A longtime fan of Vladimir Putin, like Putin Orbán introduced several laws that intensified the pressure on the LGBT+ community and considers homosexuality incompatible with "Christian" values. This pressure is likely to get even stronger going forward, and as much as I enjoyed visiting Hungay many years ago, I couldn't see going back as long as this illiberal régime is in power: https://www.thedailybeast.com/lgbt-rights-are-big-issue-in-hungary-...

  • Snow – not fun – in short supply in Sierra
