Spain is the best country for LGBT tolerance and Georgia the worst

Information Is Beautiful has sifted through piles of data from the UN, the CIA, The Guardian, and numerous other sources to compile a world map that names a country the best at something in 2016.

The gold stars are given in nine different types: Commodity (pink), Psychology (light blue), Ecology (green), Gastronomy (purple), Economy (gray), Nicety (yellow), Humanity (dark blue), Technology (red) and Nasty (black).

The country noted for its LGBT tolerance is Spain, not surprising considering it has same-sex marriage since 2005 and a wealth of other equality laws for its gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender citizens. In a study conducted by Pew Research Center in 2013, it indicated more than 88% of Spanish citizens support homosexuality, that amount of support made it the most LGBT-friendly of the countries.

But there are some bad eggs in there, with Georgia being ranked as having the most amount of homophobes. An estimated 91.5% of Georgians think that homosexuality is completely unacceptable.
