July 25, 2014 – Reported by the International Business Times – It’s illegal to be gay in 42 out of 53 Commonwealth countries, according to Stonewall, a non-governmental organisation that promotes gay rights.
Stonewall tweeted a picture outlining the situation of gay rights in the 53 Commonwealth countries as the Games started in Glasgow.
Among the countries that have banned homosexuality, there are some that harshly persecute homosexuals and, in the worst cases, sentence them to death.
