To be LGBTQ+ in these nations is to be a criminal
Even though we're in the 21st century, sadly, equality for LGBTQ+ people around the world has a long way to go.

While over 30 countries around the world have legalized same-sex marriage and about as many allow for joint adoption by same-sex couples, same-sex sexual activity is still illegal in over 60 countries.
Several countries are working to get rid of these archaic laws, but, unfortunately, others are becoming even more extreme in their persecution of the LGBTQ+ community. To discover which, check out this gallery for all the countries where homosexuality is illegal.
