Top 7 European Countries for LGBT Rights

  • 7 of 7

1. The United Kingdom

Here we have the number one. While England and Scotland are still working on marriage equality, the United Kingdom’s equality legislation is some of the most formidable in the world.

You will note, however, that the UK did not score 100%. In fact, no country did.

In particular, gender recognition and gender change recognition is one area where many nations need to improve in order to ensure they are fully honoring the rights of gender variant and trans citizens.

Not surprised by this at all, but I am a bit surprised about Norway. Thought they have strong roots with Christianity.

It's good to see people accepting the difference, even if it is slowly!

As Mary L, I too am surprised not to see Netherlands on the list!

I agree Mary. I was surprised not to see the Netherlands on this list. France was an even bigger surprise that they made it!
