Just came across a Guardian piece published a few weeks ago with some interesting findings from something called the LGBTQ+ Danger Index, which ranks the world's 150 most-visited countries using eight factors, including legalized same-sex marriage, worker protection and whether, based on Gallup poll findings, it is a good place to live.

And kudos to Canada, which comes in at number two in the world, after Sweden (my adopted country Spain comes in at number 10, but my native country the USA is just 27th (graded B- because protections are so uneven across its 50 states). So in addition to all its marvelous natural and historic wealth, it's fantastic to confirm that gays can feel welcome not just in especially gay-friendly cities like Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, but wherever the maple leaf flies.

All in all, very much worth a read!
