    There were African cultures who had a place for homosexuals -- until Christian missionaries came along. Never forget that Uganda's recent laws for capital punishment of homosexual acts were instigated by American evangelicals.

    Galapagos is a very friendly place and also impossible to get residency in unless you were born there or your parents were...or if you marry someone with residency. That's how my friend got his German boyfriend residency...they married. I manage a liveaboard in Galapagos. PM me if you want to know more.

    I live in europe and egypt ist one of the most famous dive destinations here - warm water, very good visibility, cheap, mostly intact coral reefs compared to other places. I just want to report my experiences with the LGBT+egypt+red sea :)

    I was several times in egypt together with other gay-divers and we had never a problem. However, we have always taken care to ensure that it always appears to the outside that we are simply "normal heterosexual men" who simply want to dive. During a diving holiday a European employee of an Egyptian diving base asked us on the last day if we were "together". We weren't a couple, but we still said that we are LGBT ;-)

    Dahab, some of the Egyptian sites, the red sea, are all on my list of dreams.

    As a trans woman, I fear for my life going there.
