    Why would you even put a place on the list that still criminalizes homosexuality??? Are you serious? Do you really want us to be killed or thrown in a foreign prison? Whoever made this list is a fucking asshole.

      @Sandra: 72 countries still criminalize homosexuality, some with active and aggressive enforcement, some with greater cultural and functional acceptance than many countries where homosexuality is not criminalized. We believe that engaging with those cultures and countries as travelers can be one of the most powerful ways to effect change for LGBTQ people everywhere.
