Supreme Court Declares Same-Sex Marriage Legal In All 50 States
Fifty years on from the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex LGBTI people in this country and across the world, Amnesty International UK has warned. The Sexual Offences Act, which came into force on 27 July , decriminalised private sexual activity between men over the age of 21 in England and Wales. Scotland followed in and Northern Ireland in Since then, same-sex marriage has been legalised in more than 20 countries including Argentina, Finland and South Africa. More than 40 countries have decriminalised homosexuality and more than 30 have outlawed homophobic hate crimes. Unlike the rest of the UK, same-sex marriage is still banned in Northern Ireland and last year, sexual orientation hate crimes were the second highest recorded type of hate crime in England and Wales.

And marriage equality itself, while growing around the world, is far from a global human right. Many people assume that discriminating against a person for their sexual orientation or gender identity is illegal all over the US.
