"As Statista's Anna Fleck reports, according to the index, last year’s leading destination Malta is joined at the top by Spain, Canada, New Zealand and Portugal as the safest and most open places for LGBT+ travelers in 2024, with each of these five countries receiving 12 points.

According to the report, Estonia made the greatest improvements in the past year, obtaining 6 points (in contrast to the previous index’s 2 points). This was thanks to the approval of the law in 2023 to legalize equal marriage. The first Latin American country to appear in the 2024 ranking is Uruguay, sharing the third position along with Denmark, Iceland, Germany and Norway, with 10 points each."

Thank you for posting this, it's really helpful! It's good to know where you can travel openly and where you have to hide back in the closet.

Thank you, Michelle.

I could hardly see Panama. Maybe a fly landed on it while I was looking for. Hahaha.

I had to go to the source and the rating is -5. But I've never heard any tourist complain. There is a deep-rooted conservative mentality.

@michellelarsen1 Here in Canada life is good overall. I’ve never had any issue really to date but I’m not a night crawler either so I don’t frequent bars, etc.  Out and about daily anywhere really. Probably the toughest issue is passing near teen girls. They have the uncanny ability to read someone instantly and express their discovery loudly amongst themselves, giggling and having fun with the discovery. After being out for over fifteen years, I can honestly say I have never received a derogatory comment nor any negative physical contact. It does happen in Canada, but rarely.

Hey Jill , 

That really depends on where you live in Canada . Alberta it's pretty friendly towards us considering we are redneck county . I can say times have changed since i transitioned , the hate here in Alberta is growing but this could be said on a globe scale world wide . 

Back in the day being out at night wasn't bad , it was safe then again was always with friends so that helps I guess . Now, there are parts of the city I will not go to at night . During the day yes folks are very laid back . The only troubles I have had with haters is on the transit system . But what major city doesn't . I have been all over Canada and yes , it is a safe country for trans folks .

@alexispw yeah that pretty well describes life here. I don’t have access to public transit and probably wouldn’t use it if I did, but I do recall years ago living in Ottawa, using transit then was riskish even in the 70’s, at night usually. No matter where one is, caution is key to safety with a little luck, and common sense.

Nice to see some fellow Canadians here! I'm in Alberta and it's been going well so far. My doctors and therapists have all been very accepting, and I haven't had any problems with anyone yet.
