These Are The Best European Countries To Live And Work In If You're LGBTQ+

If you're contemplating a relocation, here are some suggestions.

For LGBTQ+ communities, relocating abroad isn't always as simple as it should be. There are other things to consider, such as where you're least likely to come up against discrimination for simply being who you are.

For this reason, researchers from Expert Market analysed all the important considerations - from laws against hate crime to equal employment rights - to work out which European countries offer the best quality of life for those who want to come to live and work. As a result, a list has been compiled, ranking the countries from best to worst places to live and work abroad, with LGBTQ+ focused issues being given more of an emphasis than simply just the day-to-day costs.

Best countries to relocate to:
