Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure

Jul 8, 2022


This episode is a little delayed but that's because I needed to do a lot of research. There's quite a lot of statistics and information in it, but I hope it doesn't bore you too much.

Last month was Pride Month in most of the world, and I thought I'd take the opportunity to look at how LGBTQIA+ culture and people are affected in various countries. I chose to look specifically at four, either because I had a connection with them through social media, or because I felt they had important stories to tell. I also wanted to show how life was for LGBTQIA+ people in places that may not often get billing on the news in many international places.

The four countries I looked at were:
* Ghana
* India
* El Salvador
* Australia

While I've taken steps to ensure all my research and reporting is accurate, being from none of them means I may sometimes get some nuances slightly wrong, but I've always aimed to get the overriding sentiment.

Apologies for the quality of the national anthems. Gotta love MIDI files ...
