Between 2004 and 2014 same sex marriages were allowed by 37 US States.

Big question : Which country is next?

Gay Marriage - No legal right in Germany...
 but at least we have little gay traffic light men and women from time to time in various cities...

"Since 1 August 2001, Germany has registered partnerships (Eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft) for same-sex couples, providing most but not all rights of marriage. In 2004, this act was amended to include adoption rights (stepchild adoption only) and to reform previously cumbersome dissolution procedures with regard to division of property and alimony. Attempts to give equal rights to registered partners or to legalize same-sex marriage have generally been blocked by the CDU/CSU, the main party in government since 2005. All other main parties support full LGBT equality. The Federal Constitutional Court of Germany has however issued various rulings in favor of equal rights for same-sex registered partners (such as joint tax filing benefits), requiring the governing coalition to change the law."

And for the records: 
The first same sex marriage in our region here was celebrated by two women on June 14 in 2013 on Reunion Island, one of the first marriages after it was legalised in France.

Liebe Birgit,

Deutschland bildet in dieser Frage fast das Schlusslicht in Europa,
aber die schwulen Ampelmännchen - ausgerechnet im erzkonservativen
Bayern- lässt auf ein baldiges Umdenken hoffen!

Liebe Grüße
