To date, 29 countries have legalized same-sex marriage across the world. Thousands and thousands of same-sex couples around the globe have since tied the knot. 🥂
Switzerland is not there yet: Although the Swiss parliament decided to introduce marriage equality in December 2020, its opponents have pushed through a referendum to try to reverse this decision. That means, on September 26, Swiss voters will have a final say on the matter.
And they are not alone!
In order to support the Swiss in the weeks ahead of the vote, hundreds of All Out members from all around the world have sent us their same-sex wedding photos and uplifting words of support to couples in Switzerland.
Sunday, 26. September 2021, was a historic day in Switzerland: The Swiss people overwhelmingly voted YES on marriage equality! More than 64% of voters backed same-sex marriage in the nationwide referendum.
This is a huge victory for the Swiss LGBT+ community, who worked hard for many years to reach this goal.
