The Hustlaball in Berlin's Kit Kat Club
The French parliament recently agreed to gay marriage and also passed the adoption rights for gays and lesbians. Also Denmark said yes and passed a gay marriage law in 2012.
When will there be full equal rights for homosexuals in Germany? With the half-hearted and somewhat homophobic debate on more rights for gay couples the Federal Government topically proves its backward stand once more. It remains to be seen if the new discussions in March of this year will finally lead to a better legal position for homosexual couples in Germany.
The SPARTACUS International Gay Guide has just published the updated Gay Travel Index for in 2013. This is the only list with an evaluation of gay life in different countries and states worldwide. For the second time this ranking has been published by the worldwide biggest guide for the gay segment.
Even if in Germany there is (still) no gay marriage, the situation looks even worse in many other European countries. Russia is the worst country in Europe in respect to homo-friendliness. Nothing will change in near future in this respect – also due to the so-called "Homopropaganda" ban in cities like St. Petersburg.
Not only in Europe everything seems positive in respect of gay marriage, also in the USA a lot has been achieved in the last year. In Washington, Maryland and Maine gay marriage has been accepted. Now the gay community looks with interest at California. Here there has been a long lawsuit, after a referendum tipped the legalized gay marriage law. The supreme court of California declared this referendum for unconstitutional. A decision from the Supreme Court which will decide about the constitutional moderation of this referendum is pending. A result is expected in June, 2013. It should be a principle judgment and could lead to the fact that all federal states must recognize gay marriage. The positive outcome is not guaranteed. It could be that the Supreme Court leaves the final decision to the federal states.
