A total of 72 countries have criminal laws against sexual activity by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people (LGBTIs), according to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, or ILGA. It leaves out Indonesia, where millions of citizens are affected by anti-LGBT laws.
It also omits three anti-LGBT governments because they don’t appear on a list of internationally recognized countries for one reason or another.
Oceania 69 Cook Islands 70 Indonesia (Aceh Province and South Sumatra) 71 Kirbati 72 Papua New Guinea 73 Samoa 74 Solomon Islands 75 Tonga 76 Tuvalu Europe No country in Europe has a law against homosexuality.
The last European location with such a law was Northern Cyprus (recognized as a country only by Turkey), which repealed its law in January 2014.
Also in Europe and worth mentioning but not on the list of countries with laws against homosexuality are: In addition, in central Asia, Kyrgyzstan in October 2014 was on the verge of adopting an anti-“gay propaganda” law harsher than that in Russia.
As of the publication of the 2016 edition of ILGA’s State-Sponsored Homophobia report, ILGA’s list numbered 75.
But both Seychelles and Nauru repealed their anti-gay laws in May 2016, just after the ILGA report was prepared for publication. 10, 2016, the Supreme Court in Belize overturned that nation’s anti-sodomy law as applied to consensual sex. The main difference between that revised ILGA total of 72 nations and this blog’s list of 76+ is that ILGA mentions but does not include four political entities that are on this blog’s list: This blog’s total would be 78 countries if it were to include Russia and Lithuania, two countries that do not have laws against homosexual acts but do have repressive laws against “propaganda of homosexuality.” Libya and Nigeria have similar anti-propaganda laws, but also prohibit same-sex relations, so they are already on the list.
That list was used in that year’s Spirit of 76 Worldwide program aimed at repealing those laws.
It also inspired the name of this blog — “Erasing 76 Crimes.” These are some of the recent changes in the list: Here is this blog’s list of 76 countries and independent political entities with anti-homosexuality laws, with links to the blog’s coverage of them: Africa 1 Algeria 2 Angola 3 Botswana 4 Burundi 5 Cameroon 6 Comoros 7 Egypt 8 Eritrea 9 Ethiopia 10 Gambia 11 Ghana 12 Guinea 13 Kenya 14 Liberia 15 Libya 16 Malawi (enforcement of law suspended) 17 Mauritania 18 Mauritius 19 Morocco 20 Namibia 21 Nigeria 22 Senegal 23 Sierra Leone 24 Somalia 25 South Sudan 26 Sudan 27 Swaziland 28 Tanzania 29 Togo 30 Tunisia 31 Uganda 32 Zambia 33 Zimbabwe Asia, including the Middle East 34 Afghanistan 35 Bangladesh 36 Bhutan 37 Brunei 38 Daesh (or ISIS / ISIL) 39 India 40 Iran 41 Iraq 42 Kuwait 43 Lebanon (law ruled invalid in one court) 44 Malaysia 45 Maldives 46 Myanmar 47 Oman 48 Pakistan 49 Palestine/Gaza Strip 50 Qatar 51 Saudi Arabia 52 Singapore 53 Sri Lanka 54 Syria 55 Turkmenistan 56 United Arab Emirates 57 Uzbekistan 58 Yemen Americas 59 Antigua & Barbuda 60 Barbados 61 Dominica (But see “Dominica leader: No enforcement of anti-gay law” ) 62 Grenada 63 Guyana 64 Jamaica 65 St Kitts & Nevis 66 St Lucia 67 St Vincent & the Grenadines 68 Trinidad & Tobago In the United States, anti-sodomy laws were ruled unconstitutional by the U. Supreme Court in 2003, but they are still on the books in 13 states: Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
