AT LEAST ABOUT 1 IN 10 PERSON IDENTIFIES AS LGBT+ IN EUROPE. SPAIN IS #1 WITH 14%


This month, a survey conducted by Ipsos in 30 countries examined sexual orientation and attitudes towards same-sex marriage. One of the results from this survey is depicted in the above map, illustrating the percentage of adults who identify as LGBT+.

Among the countries surveyed, the very caliente Spain (of course!) with its many gayborhood cities and islands (Madrid, Gran Canaria, Barcelona, Sitges, Torremolinos, Ibiza) boasts the highest percentage of individuals identifying as LGBT+, with none other than 14% of adults embracing the rainbow identity. Following closely is Switzerland, with 13%, while the Netherlands and the UK both exhibit 12%.

It is important to note the legal status of same-sex marriage or civil unions in certain countries displayed on this map. In Turkey, Romania, and Poland, same-sex marriage, civil unions, or registered partnerships are not recognized. The legal stance on same-sex marriage, as well as the level of acceptance of LGBT+ individuals within a society, can influence the proportion of people identifying as LGBT+, or even just admitting that fact to self.

Poland and Ireland display the lowest percentages. Notably, both countries still maintain old Catholic influences which as you know has been corrupted with lies, as explained here.
