Gay marriage around the world 9

Stig Ellins (L) and his partner Steen Andersen pose with a rose after their wedding at Frederiksberg church in Copenhagen on June 15, 2012. Denmark, a pioneer in gay rights, on Thursday saw its parliament vote overwhelmingly in favor of allowing homosexuals to marry in the state Evangelical Lutheran Church. Denmark was the first country in the world to allow gay couples to enter into civil unions in 1989.
