Same-Sex marriage/rights by country or territory map

Post by Charlie » October 24th 2016, 9:07 am

This map is for reference for all members, applying or existing, to have an updated view on their national stance on LGBT rights.
For nations that have not mentioned their stance prior to, I have given them a ranking based on nearby countries.
If anything is coded wrong, just let me know and I will fix it to what you say. :)

How exactly would you classify a country that neither regulates nor recognizes any kind of marriage? Marriage is an exclusively private-sector matter in Lower Columbia, with no issuance of marriage licenses or availability of other government-sponsored benefits for spouses (although married couples typically pay lower taxes, due to how the tax rates are structured). At the same time, non-heterosexuality has been legal since 2012, making same-sex unions de facto legal (or, at least, not illegal). One could make the case for classifying it as "same-sex unions not recognized", although that's technically true even for opposite-sex unions.

Oh, how I love making things complicated. :P

Gosh darn it Zack, always making it complicated! :lol:
For that, given the circumstances, I'd say it is legal just for simplicity :P

On a related note, thanks to the marvellous work of Michael, a related wiki page has been created:
http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=LGB ... _territory

All nations have been defaulted with a tick (yes) symbol, so everyone can input their specific information. This is done by edited the relevant templates for continental divides.

Looking at this map, its funny how AIN members in Asia are the only ones who allow SSM in the continent. Whoops.

I hadn't actually thought of Nyanga's stance on this matter. I'm not sure where to place it. Because it's a "new" country, against oppression and restrictions of freedoms, that would place us somewhat similar to South Africa, where in 2006 they made it legal based on the idea that it would be unconstitutional to do otherwise. But, Nyanga is conservative and generally the population and the government value "tradition". I would want to make it legal, but I'm not sure if it would fit in.

I just naturally based it on Gabon's existing laws, which there are none to speak of really. And given Nyanga's position in Africa, I'd assume it'd be much the same. i.e: no laws for or against it, just unrecognised. :P

Asgard needs to be Cyan, all current marriages are recognized by the Illium Government, but no new marriages will be performed.

Oh? I assumed that the provinces of Asgard would still perform them - would add a lot more controversy for the people there, but will update next time at pc :P

Cuba will likely become blue soon, hopefully.

Though I feel this map should be titled "Same-sex marriage rights" instead of "LGBT rights", because the two are absolutely not the same. This map says nothing about trans people, agender people or other LGBTQ+ people in general.

Probably yes, I agree that Trans etc should be seen as a separate thing. But on the main wikipedia entry it is titled as LGBT rights by country or territory; which is likely where the title comes from. Generally it's a good idea to keep formal lists/etc inline with wiki standards.

Well, I can't say I agree with how Wikipedia titles its pages then.
