This research explores the differences and similarities between the lived experiences and public perceptions of LGBT+ people in Costa Rica and Uruguay. Existing research shows that countries with higher rates of urbanization, education, income, and industrialization tend to be more accepting of LGBT+ sexualities; however, there are various countries in Latin America that do not conform to those findings. This study explores the general public opinion about LGBT+ people, the experience of being LBGT+, and the factors that led to differences between the two countries. The researcher employs a mixed-method approach, including interviews, public perception polls, and information on current laws and policies. This research helps us better understand how perceptions of LGBT+ issues are formed and what social and other factors influence the treatment of LGBT+ people.
