We are proud to introduce our Gay Happiness Index. It is the result of a global survey in which you gave us your valuable input. Check the full results of 127 countries and find out how your country ranks.
We call it the Gay Happiness Index, but the situation for many of us is anything but happy. When applying the research results to the entire world population, the estimated outcome is shocking:
- 4 million of us were victim of serious physical violence in 2014
- 13 million were banned from their family home
- 41 million want to escape their home country
- 66 million are not out to their parents
This Sunday, May 17, we celebrate IDAHOT – the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. Let’s also think of those who face hardships and struggles just because of who they are. We hope that the GHI data are helpful for everyone fighting for human rights, for all LGBT people worldwide.
Last, but not least: we also launched our new company pages. We hope you like them!
