The five most improved places for gay tolerance
Wednesday 17 September 2008
The Indian capital has a flourishing scene and this year celebrated its first gay pride march. Homosexuality remains illegal under a British law from 1860, but this now faces a constitutional challenge in the High Court.
Homosexuality is legal in China and a fast growing scene exists in its most Westernised city.
Israel is the only Middle-Eastern country to support gay rights legislation, and the country attracts gay people from Palestine and Lebanon. Tel Aviv has a growing scene and is tolerant and gay-friendly for both men and women.
Homosexuality was legalised in South Africa in 1994 and in 2006 it became the first African country to legalise gay marriage. Cape Town is proud of its expanding gay scene.
It is nearly 50 years since Castro declared homosexuality "a bourgeois perversion" and all laws against it have now been overturned. Cuba is a popular destination for gay men and women and there is a busy scene.
