While I normally encourage people to live true to themselves, in some countries you need to stay in the closet if you want to live at all.

As this graphic shows, homosexuality is punishable by imprisonment or death in a disturbingly large portion of the world. (I just wish the two weren’t lumped in the same color – I’m curious to know how much of the map actually believes homosexuality is an “offense” worthy of execution.)

I was very pleasantly surprised, however, to see that same-sex marriage is legal in so much of South America. Qué bueno!
