A survey by dating and community site PlanetRomeo shows that the United States ranks 26th in the Gay Happiness Index
The Netherlands-based company collaborated with the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in Germany to carry out an online survey of 115,000 gay men around the world.
While Iceland tops the list and the United States comes in at 26th, the ten worst countries are Kazakhstan, Ghana, Cameroon, Iran, Nigeria, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda.
The survey also found that in the top 20 countries, 37 percent of respondents were currently in a committed relationship with another man, while 3 percent were in a relationship with a woman.
Several countries, including Uganda, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan, Nigeria and Ethiopia, Russia, Turkey and Hungary show a negative trend in the index.
Coming in at 127th on the index, Uganda is the worst place to be gay in the countries surveyed.
Although Ireland is one place ahead of the U.S. at 25th, it is likely to improve following the successful referendum on same-sex marriage.
