Europe Most Friendly Place for LGBTIs

The EU Observer has a series of interesting articles describing the progress Europe has made towards becoming more friendly to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transsexual and intersex (LGBTI) community.  Europe is ranked as the most LGBTI-friendly continent in the world, with Latin American making significant progress in this regard.  According to the EU Observer, the only place where homosexuality is still criminal in Europe is Northern Cyprus.  By contrast, approximately 40% of the world's countries penalize homosexuality.  However, the NGO Ilga notes that relatively favorable treatment does not mean full equality in any country in Europe.  To read more, click here.
