Discrimination, worker's rights, public opinion, marriage legislation and even the death penalty just for being gay, are some of the major factors that contribute towards the gay community's well-being and ultimate happiness.

Naturally, because of different laws and attitudes, the treatment of the gay community differs from country to country.

The gay happiness index is the first ever worldwide ranking of its kind, and is based on the opinions of 115,000 gay men.
