M saw me editing the USA gay marriage map to color Rhode Island, and since he’s a map fiend, was immediately interested. E then suggested we make a world map, and so M helped me put that together.
So here it is, a global view of gay marriage! (You can click to enlarge it if you wish.) Note: there are a few countries which have approved legislation permitting gay marriage, but it has not yet gone into effect. I’ve colored them green anyway. I have not colored countries, such as the USA, which provide local but not federal recognition of gay marriage or civil unions.
