Most Gay-friendly country in the world, come to here, you're not gonna regret it!

This country is the best for LGBT rights.

Best countries for LGBT rights

North America: Canada followed by the U. S (Canada is much more friendlier to gays)
Latin America: probably Argentina, Brazil or Chile. Mexicans are still quite homophobes.
Europe: Sweden, Spain, France, Germany (even though they don't have gay marriage, people there are very gay friendly)
Africa: South Africa (however still is a very dangerous country)
Asia (I would Japan amd Philipines are the most gay friendly countries there)
Oceania: probably Australia.
