The small nation of Malta often ranks as one of the safest in the world for LTBTQ+ folks, so it’s no surprise that Malta ranks number one in a new ranking in the Global Trans Rights Index from asherfergusson.com.
In an extensive article entitled “203 Best (& Worst) Countries for Trans Rights in 2023,” Croatia came it at a very worthy 7th position on the list and was ranked as a “A” country on a scale from A to F.
Following Malta, Portugal, Canada, Sweden, and Bolivia emerged as the next leading countries for trans rights. These nations have implemented legal protections for LGBTQ+ individuals and afford the right to change gender identity legally without the prerequisite of medical transition. Notably, Europe dominates the list, with 16 out of the top 20 countries for trans rights being located within the continent.
And then after Bolivia in 6th position came Croatia in 7th place, followed by Denmark in 8th place. Larger European countries came further down the list, with France in 12th position, the UK in 15th place and Germany in 23rd position.
The research showed that Croatia has a 0.0 percent trans murder rate and that it is legal and no surgery is required.
