LONDON, Dec 21 (Openly) – There were huge milestones and setbacks for LGBTQ+ rights around the world during 2023. Same-sex marriage was legalised in nations including Slovenia and Andorra, gay sex was decriminalised in Mauritius and the Cook Islands and self-identification laws for transgender people were passed in Spain, Finland and New Zealand. However, trans rights lost ground in Russia and parts of the United States, while Uganda passed one of the world’s strictest anti-gay laws, imposing the death sentence for certain same-sex acts. Here is what to watch out for in 2024.
