Progress for the world’s LGBTQ+ people has not been evenly spread in 2022, with some countries marking new milestones and others rolling back rights. In wins, Singapore, Antigua and Barbuda and Saint Kitts and Nevis decriminalised gay sex in 2022, while same-sex marriage was officially legalised in Switzerland, Mexico and Slovenia. But Indonesia approved a new criminal code banning extramarital sex which activists said could disproportionately impact same-sex couples as they lack the right to marry, while Russia expanded its ban on so-called LGBTQ+ ‘propaganda’.
