A Poll Shows That Most Faroese People Are In Favor Of Legalizing Marriage Equality

A Gallup poll shows that more than a majority of the inhabitants of the Faroe Islands is in favor of equal marriage.

Indeed, 61% of respondents are in favor of equal marriage while 32% are opposed, the 7% remaining having no opinion.

The Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark, but have their own laws so even if the marriage for same-sex couples was legalized in 2012 in Denmark, it is not legal on the Faroe Islands because same-sex unions are not recognized.

In March, a bill was intended to extend the law of Denmark to the Islands, but it was rejected by 20 votes against 11.
