EventsEdit

  • Sweden legalizes adoption for same-sex couples, making Sweden's registered partnership nearly identical to marriage, with the exception of right to marriage in a church.

AprilEdit

  • April 28 - Homosexuality is decriminalized in China, as the newly amended Marriage Law avoids this topic.

MayEdit

AugustEdit

SeptemberEdit

  • September 4 - Hungary - The Constitutional Court has repealed the § 199 of the penal code so the age of consent has been equal for both heterosexual and homosexual activity at 14.
  • September 22 - Switzerland - Voters in the canton of Zurich voted 63% to 37% to give same-sex couples the same legal rights as married opposite-sex couples. This includes tax, inheritance, and social security benefits. These rights are only given to same-sex couples who live in Zurich canton and who register with the government, promising to live together and support each other for six months.
