A ranking was released in May 2021 that explores the best places for LGBTQ+ travel in the world. According to the data from My Dating Adviser, the study has "found the most gay-friendly destinations and ranked the best countries for LGBTQ+ travel."
The factors that were taken into account include society acceptance, sexual activity rights, civil union rights, marriage rights, adoption rights, military rights, anti-discrimination laws, and gender identity laws.
Based on these indicators, the top 20 LGBTQ+ travel destinations were ranked as follows:
- United Kingdon
- South Africa
- United States
- Czech Republic
"We have scientifically proven that Sweden is the best country for LGBTQ+ travel, as attitudes and laws are gay-friendly, beating out other great countries in Europe and around the world," said the study.
While Canada fell in seventh place, the country does check each of the boxes outlined.
