The 2012 Spartacus International Gay Guide, an international gay travel guidebook published annually since 1970, originally by John D. Stamford, and currently by Bruno Gmünder Verlag in Berlin, Germany ,  published its annual Top Gay Friendly Destinations last June (excuse us we are a little behind) and if you are going on vacation you might think twice, well 38 times before vacationing in America as the USA ranked #38 behind countries like Thailand, Cambodia and Croatia thanks to anti-gay laws, a lack of marriage equality, and some unfriendly corners of the Land of the Free and th home of the Religious Morons.

Topping the list was Sweden, which scored points for having   anti-discrimination laws, recognition of gay unions, an equal age of consent,   travel marketing aimed at gays and no institutional persecution of the LGBT   community.

Other top-10 rated nations include Belgium, France, Netherlands, United   Kingdom, Canada, Denmark,  Iceland, Norway and  Spain.
