Most Countries in Africa are Highly Intolerant of Homosexuality; Here’s a List of Them

Homosexuality keeps on being an unthinkable subject in Africa and other black communities around the globe. Sexual fascination or connection between individuals from a similar s_x or gender has advanced from being a shrouded practice to an image of pride.

Out of the 195 nations on the planet, 72 of them are no-go zones for same-sex couples as they chance dangers, criminal allegations, jail sentence and even capital punishment.

A world guide released by Australian insurance company Travel Insurance Direct identified nations and domains according to how tolerant national mentalities were towards LBGTI couples.
