Guiding You in the Right Direction

Same Sex Marriage

The US Supreme Court declared on Friday, June 26, 2015 that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States. As a result, all those gay marriage bans are going to fall.

As for now, 23 countries have legalized same-sex marriage, including the United States, England, Canada, France, New Zealand, etc.

It was a tough victory. Same-sex marriage finally got a fair deal in the United States nationwide after 11 years. However, controversy has not yet ended. A survey showed that 90% of Nigerians believe their country would be a better place without homosexuals. In addition, 81% do not agree that gay people should have the same rights as other Nigerians. Only 30% of Nigerians were shown to believe that gay people deserved equal access to public services such as healthcare, housing and education.

Not only Nigerians, but also Australians. "The community as a whole is not ready to accept the inclusion of same sex marriage in the Australian Marriage Act at this point in time."

We don't judge who's right and who's wrong. Homosexual exists as an independent sexual orientation, and in no way does it differ from heterosexual.They happen to fall in love with someone of the same sex. Why do we have to judge and even ban them from being able to marry the one they love? They have the right to live their life the way they want. Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender are normal sexual orientations. They shouldn't hide or escape. Let's continue fighting to obtain the rights we deserve, in the same way we fight for freedom and anti-racism.

The rainbow flag has been raised. We have to keep it flying in the air.
