Pride week is just around the corner and this LGBT infographic shows how people are celebrating around the world.
Many countries around the world embrace the idea of pride parades and look forward to seeing Cyndi Lauper being the diva she is, but that's not possible for many people who are still oppressed because of their sexual orientation.
GOOD created this infographic to illustrate the pride and political aspects of gay and lesbian communities around the world. Highlighted in pink are the countries who celebrate with pride parades. In yellow, are the nations not celebrating with parades or are celebrating with parades but face political oppression. The black indicates nations where homosexuality is outlawed or not recognized. This LGBT Infographic even shows nations where only male homosexuality is illegal.
Before heading out to celebrate pride this year, take a moment to think about those who face prosecution for who they are.
