Yeah. I mean, they're just people. And people are people. Crazy that there's a death penalty in Brunei now.

Singapore is not dominated by Buddhism or Islam. It is quite secular but you are right, it is not democratic.

sad... at least here it's legal. Those countries don't understand the life. Imagine, if it had to be two gay who make children so it's the reverse would happen, it's terrible... and I know what I say... I know myself. (sorry for my English)

i know lebanon and tunisia are starting to be more accepting, but i'm still disappointed in many of these countries, like ghana, kenya, tanzania, botswana, liberia, malawi, seychelles and the americas.

I can guarantee you nothing will happen to LGBTQ+ communities in India. There are even many famous homosexual and intersex celebrities like Andy. At least I haven't been executed, or jailed for being Gay. Yes they are discriminated but it's not illegal to be LGBTQ+ in India.

I would humbly request you to please remove India from the list (◍•ᴗ•◍)

The title of this quiz is very misleading. In the muslim majority countries on the list, it isn't illegal to be gay, as in being attracted to the same gender. What's illegal is to have intercourse (or whatever they call it) with the same gender. Don't know about the other countries on the list, but this is the case with the muslim majority countries.

Even in the Quran it's fine to just "be" gay. But it only becomes a problem when you act upon the feeling. I understand your point, but what you're saying is like saying It's ok to be a murderer as long as you don't act upon it.
