UK Topped By Malta As The Best Place For LGBTIs In Europe

The UK has lost its place as the number one place for LGBTI rights in Europe after Malta introduced a raft of new legislation.

New rules surrounding outlawing surgery on intersex children, education and civil partnerships have all added to Malta’s new position at number one on the ILGA-Europe’s Rainbow Europe
Malta is now ranks at #1 on LGBTI rights, scoring 89% across forty sets of criteria; the UK falls behind in second place on 86%.
Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat took to Twitter to welcome the news.
The UK still lags in a number of places mainly in not granting asylum on gender identity grounds, a legal requirement for trans people to get medical investigation before being allowed to change their gender and surgery to “correct” an intersex child’s gender.Down at the bottom of the list Russia and Azerbaijan score 8.35% and 5% respectively.
