76 countries where homosexuality is illegal.

The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, or ILGA, lists 75 countries with criminal laws against sexual activity by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people (LGBTIs), but that’s an understatement.

This blog’s similar 78-country list is below, including links to the blog’s coverage of each one. A separate article lists the 10 governments with laws providing for the death penalty for same-sex intimacy, at least on paper.

The main difference between ILGA’s 75-nation list and this blog’s list of 78+ is that ILGA mentions but does not include four political entities that are on this blog’s list.
