Sussex Semester

8 Apr 2012

This is a series of maps produced by the International, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Association that displays levels of politically legitimized persecution on gay rights around the world. 7 countries still practice the death penalty. These maps are a stark reminder of the progress that remains to be made, but remember, they don’t tell the whole story. Many countries such as South Africa, have relatively liberal laws regarding gay rights, but social attitudes haven’t caught up and stigmatization and hate persist. To zoom in on the world map, go to http://front.moveon.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/LGBT-Righs-Worldwide-BIG.jpeg
