15 Gayest Countries in the World per Capita

Which do you think the gayest countries in the world per capita are? Insider Monkey has given you the answer – so you don’t need to search on the internet any more. This is the issue that I completely don’t know what to think about. I don’t know why somebody is homosexual, but one thing is sure, I have never hurt anyone’s feelings because of their sexual identity. Homosexuality is not caused by a single factor but is rather a result of multiple of causes, scientists have agreed. Those are biological, environmental and cognitive factors. From the evolutionary point of view, great answers on homosexuality issues are nicely explained by pioneering evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of gayest countries in the world per capita from their list.

The first one is Ireland. We all remember the fuss about the referendum held in 2015 about the amendment to Irish Constitution about gay marriage. Overall numbers have shown that approximately 60% of voters voted for and about 37% voted against the amendment. This also puts Ireland a number one country to put voting for an issue like this. But, luckily, Ireland’s gay couples finally got the right to get married legally. The second country on our list now is Italy. What brings Italy to our list of the gayest countries in the world per capita are the figures saying that 4.8% of the population is gay. But, it’s not all roses in Italy, as it is one of the worst western countries to be gay in. It only comes to the middle of rankings made by Rainbow Europe  about respecting LGBT rights, based mainly on countries’ laws and policies and how they affect LGBT communities. The last country now is Poland. One of the first thoughts, when one thinks of Poland, is the number of churches in the country. Poland is one of the most religious countries of Europe (with around 90% of the population being Roman Catholic). But, with the figure of 4.9% of the population being gay, it seems that Poland is becoming a more gay-friendly country, although same-sex marriage is still not legalized.
