Looking To Escape For 4 Years? The ABC's Of The 15 Best Countries for LGBT Expats.
Will you look to escape the Trump presidency for four years? Done with 'Merika? Are you considering packing up and heading out of the United States? That's not really an option for many American citizens, but those of us that are OINKs or DINKs (One Income No Kares or Double Income No Kids), we could highly consider moving away from all of this. So why don't we?
Since I now work from home, I could hang my hat where ever I desire. I don't have any big ties to any certain area. I've traveled quite a bit in Canada and the United States and I think I would love to be a snowbird with Montreal Summers and New Orleans Winters. I've told myself for years, when I get older ... I could make this happen. But then again, why wait? Why don't I pull the trigger. Why not now?
Jump to November 2016 US Presidential election. So many of us are upset with the results that we are saying, let's move! Is the Trump presidency or the trump Presidency the catalyst to make this happen? Will you pull the trigger? Others say we need to stay in the United States and fight for our rights. But what if you no ties to a certain place and just want a better life? A better gay life? Why not use the Trump presidency as an excuse to pack it all up and go!
Prior to this week's stunning presidential election results, a number of LGBTQ advocates and celebrities threatened to leave the U.S. should Donald Trump be elected. Now that the real estate mogul and reality TV star is America's president-elect, NBC OUT has compiled a handy list of LGBTQ-friendly countries for U.S. expatriates. - nbcnews.com
Do you seriously think anyone will leave? Will any stars make the move?
So where does NBC think we should escape to?
Argentina legalized same-sex marriage back in 2010, becoming the first country in Latin America to do so. It's also the home to more than 30 national parks, the beautiful city of Buenos Aires and tango.
In 2003, Belgium became the second country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage. It ranked #4 on Gallup's 2015 list of "Top Places for Gay People to Live," #23 on HSBC's ranking of best countries for expats and is known for its delicious cuisine.
America's northern neighbor legalized same-sex marriage back in 2005, and the country's new prime minister is openly LGBTQ-friendly. Canada is also home to Vancouver and Toronto, two of the world's best cities for expats, according to a recent report.
So those are the first three of 15 nations, the ABC's of where we should move according to NBC. The post goes on to list the other dozen nations that we Americans should consider heading to in order to escape the reality tv president. Denmark, France, Iceland and several others make the cut.
Head over to nbcnews.com to see if the nation you live in or a nation you love made the list. Someone already complained that we did not include all 15 countries here. To that I say ... if you can't do one more click to read the whole list on another site, there's no way in hell you're going to take the effort to move to another country.
What three "S" nations made the list? One did surprise me and now makes me want to visit before considering packing it all up to move there.
