Why is Italy so low?? I thought their society and laws are more progressive? 

Public opinion is progressive, but Parliament needs to catch up.

 

Italy has large gaps in anti-discrimination laws, no adoption rights and same-sex marriage is still a couple of years away.

Sweden is only 60%?? I thought it would be one of the highest.

I think it's because of the recent rise in LGBT hate crimes and influx of anti-gay immigrants

Reminder, this is about laws on the books. Not about gays being interviewed about how well they have it. The number of hate crimes does not factor here, only if they have a hate crime law in the first place.

 

Sweden is low because their anti-discrimination laws and hate crime laws only cover sexuality and not gender identity so once they fix it for the trans community they will shoot up the chart.

How is Netherlands not 100%? They were the first in the world to legalize gay marriage.

I take these stats with a grain of salt though. Imo The Netherlands is still the best country in the world for gay people despite an incident or two. Though I agree with some other posters here that the influx of muslim immigrants is potentially dangerous for gay people in the long run.

Czechia 29% and Slovakia 28%? :ahh: Gorl.....Czechia has registered partnerships for like 12 years now, meanwhile Slovakia literally banned gay marriage in the constitution law in 2014... There can't be just 1% difference

:rip: I suppose what brought Czechia down is that Slovakia has LGBT hate crime laws and Cz doesn't.

Russia updated their gender change laws and simplified them to the level of most European countries so expect them to move up.

I assumed Switzerland would be way higher, but apparently they don't have same sex marriage nor some protections yet. At least public support is overwhelmingly high.

Public is in favor of more rights, it's Parliament that is dragging its feet.

Yup. Polls say around 2/3 support it and growing. They should get it by at least 2019/20 if Govt discussions can be taken seriously.

Did you realize this index calculates government policies and laws and not public opinion or did you just want to take the opportunity to be racist?
