Updates: As of July 21, 2017 – Germany’s Marriage Equality has been signed into law by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier which will take effect in October 1, 2017. Please click on the image below for more details of the story. (credit source: dw.com)

Indeed, on June 30, 2017, Germany’s Bundestag (Parliament) voted for the legalization of #SameSexMarriage across Germany.

Our Congratulations to the LGBTQ+ community across Germany. There is nothing more essential that to get recognized with equal marriage to those of the heterosexuals. More Power across the globe for #MarriageEquality.

“It is very positive for the self-esteem of gays and lesbians; it’s very important for people coming out, knowing that they have this equality,; and it sends clear message to any homophobic refugees coming to Germany; We have equality here.” – said Arndt Bächler, Counselor and Addiction Therapist, Berlin’s Gay Counselling Center.

“The law was not about ‘special rights for anyone but about equal rights’; the law would play significant role in combating discrimination, by helping make same-sex relationships a social norm in Germany, as they have been as many countries across Europe.  Last week, the German Parliament voted to void the convictions of 50,000 men punished under anti-gay law repealed in 1994.

I am certain that just a few years from now, as a society we will look back on this decision on Marriage Equality, and ask ourselves, “Why on earth did it take us so long?” – said, Christine Lüders, Director of Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency (source credit: NYTimes)

On Saturday (London Time), thousands of people will celebrate the 2017 Pride Parade in London. Wishing everyone with great fun and enjoyments. Happy Pride to the entire community of LGBT+

For anyone who plans to see the parade, please scroll down to see the path where the parade will take place.

The 2017 London Pride Celebrations also marked the 50th year since the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales.

 

“It was in the Houses of Parliament that homosexuality was decriminalised, equal consent laws were introduced, the bigoted Section 28 was repealed, where civil partnership and ultimately equal marriage were adopted.

“This powerful institution, right at the heart of British democracy, has become a powerful tool for equality in recent times.

 “The rainbow flag flying above serves as a testament to this legacy and a reflection of how far we have come as a community – with more LGBT+ politicians than any other country in the world.” – said David Geary, head of political engagement for Pride In London (credit source: telegraph.co.uk)

Germany On a Path to Marriage Equality #SameSexMarriage

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

In a recent development, Germany is on its path for Marriage Equality.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel encouraged the Bundestag Members to weigh-in on “question for conscience”.  Her Parliamentary Leader Volker Kauder asked CDU’s members of the Bundestag to show for the vote. CDU (Christian Democratic Union of Germany) is Angela Merkel’s political party. The Social Democrats, Merkel’s  grand coalition partner are expected to table the voting sooner than September 24, 2017. (credit source: dw.com)

Speculations indicate that the vote may pass as majority of the Germans do not opposed to SameSex Marriage according to a study that was released  early this year by Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency. Perhaps in the coming days or weeks Germany’s Marriage Equality will become a reality.

More power to the #LGBTQ community of Germany. #lovewins #loveislove #MarriageEquality
