So what are the most gay friendly countries in the world? Can you guess all of them? Keep up reading, as we have come up with Insider Monkey’s latest article. Homosexuals have done large distance from the first cases, when gay people were dismissed just because of not being heterosexuals. They have had many fights, battles but finally they have won at several parts of life. Additionally, more and more countries legalize same sex marriages and adoptions. You will see, European countries dominate the list, which is not surprising. Although there are countries where gay people have to face with persecution and even execution just because of being homosexual. These countries are mainly Islamic ones, as the Sharia laws make it possible. But this article is not about these countries, we have a much more pleasant topic today, showing you around in countries where people and governments are tolerant with the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bi-sexual and transgenders) community.

Now let’s quit the tittle tattle and see what you are here for – the most gay friendly countries from Insider Monkey’s compilation. We have brought up with three countries for now. Iceland is the eighth country on the list, which is really not surprising, as same sex couples have been able to get IVF and adopt children since 2006.
