The Global Acceptance Index (GAI) uses a country’s public beliefs and policies regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people to determine that nation’s score, which is then used to rank each country in order from most accepting to least accepting of LGBTQ people.
According to new research released in November 2021, "globally, the average level of acceptance has increased since 1980," and"Brazil, Canada, Great Britain, and the United States have all increased their acceptance of LGBTI people and rights." Source
