Every country in the world implements a different combination of policies based on inclusion, admission, tolerance, exclusion, and persecution. Based on these combinations, every armed force can be estimated and ranked to compare countries. The LGBT Military Index ranks militaries, with the most inclusive scoring highest. The color scale indicates how countries scored: the brighter the pink on our map, the higher the country scores in our index and the more inclusive its military is. Likewise, the lower a country scores in our index, the darker is its color. In countries that are colored black, LGBT people may face persecution.” ~from the HCSS website. Show less
