    THAILANDYou probably associate Thailand with amazing beaches and neverending parties. To top this up, there is a huge love to the LGBT community, which makes Thailand one of the most liberal Asian country in terms of its attitudes towards different sexualities. According to many sources, Bangkok is a haven for the Asian LGBT community, as its international environment makes it a very tolerant and diverse city. Also, there is of course also a huge acceptance towards transwomen in Bangkok which makes is the world capital of transgender queens and their friends.NORWAYNorway seems to always be ahead of everyone else. This forward- thinking approach made this country one of the first to introduce anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation in 1981. More than that, the in vitro fertilisation IVF for gay couples has been legal since 2009 and the cherry on the top of the cake are the Norwegian Prides, which probably attract more tourists to Norway than the Northern lights do.CANADAOur neighbour is quite ahead of us when it comes to LGBT right. Ever since the decriminalization of homosexuality in the 1960s, Canada has been setting example to the rest of the world and we couldn’t stress enough our love to the Prime Minister Trudeau who has been very supportive of gay rights as well as pretty much showing us what true leaders should look and behave like!BELGIUMIf you ever go to Brussels, you will feel gay friendliness everywhere around yourself the moment you arrive at the central train station. In 2003, Belgium became the second country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage and now it is ranked #4 on list of “Top Places for Gay People to Live.” We couldn’t argue less. Belgium is the heaven for foodies, festivals and LGBT community!DENMARKJust like its Scandinavian sister Norway, Denmark was the first country in the world to recognize same-sex partnerships back in 1989, and the Scandinavian country officially legalized same-sex marriage in 2012. On top of all this, Copenhagen was listed among the top cities for LGBT expats, so you can be sure that if you ever get cold in this northern country, you will always find someone to warm your heart up on a cold Danish night.
