At the heart of the modern Gay Rights Movement is the fight for marriage equality. Across the globe, cities, states and entire nations are recognizing the rights of LGBT people to form families under the protection of the law. Here is where same-sex marriage stands in Denmark:
6/7/89: The world's first country to grant same-sex civil partnerships. These civil unions carry most, but not all, of the same rights and benefits of marriage.
3/17/09: Legislation was introduced to legalize same-sex adoption.
Denmark also prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation.
