20 Worst Places to Travel if You Are Gay

There are so many gay-friendly places to visit — why choose a place where you’re not welcome or might even be in danger?  Before you book your flight, check out this list.

Nigeria

Nigeria is probably a place you should not have on your bucket list if you’re gay.  More than 97 percent of the population thinks that being gay is unacceptable.  Same-sex couples can be put in prison for up to 14 years.  Even public displays of affection are illegal, so forget holding your partner’s hand.  Being a member of any gay organization is also a crime.  Nigeria?  Don’t bother.

Iran

Iran is the home of an ancient culture. There are some very impressive things to see in this country, like the ruins of Persepolis.  It would probably be a great county to visit if you didn’t have to worry about being put to death because of your sexual orientation.

Yup, that’s right: Iran is one of several nations that has the death penalty for same-sex behavior.  Both male and female same-sex activity is illegal.

Jamaica

Ah, Jamaica: pristine beaches, palm trees swaying, spectacular waterfalls — the perfect place for a vacation.  Unless you’re a male couple, that is.

Jamaica has an anti-gay sodomy law that is a holdover from an 1864 British colonial anti-sodomy law.  Sex between men is illegal: you face up to 14 years in prison.  Sex between women is legal, so ladies, come on down and enjoy the sunshine and the rum!
