Lonely Planet, the guidebook bigwigs, has come out with their annual top lists, and this year the travel guide company crowned Copenhagen, Denmark the most gay-friendly place on earth, following up closely behind is the entire country of New Zealand, and rounding out the top three is Toronto, Canada.  The guide praised Copenhagen’s early adoption of same-sex marriage laws (in 1989), for having the oldest gay bar in Europe, and for its renaming of a main square, Rainbow Square for Pride. New Zealand was praised for becoming the first nation to adopt the “Gay/Lesbian Friendly” accomodation label in 1998, for passing same-sex marriage last year, and its aggressive marketing strategy to attract gay people to the island nation.
