Marriage Equality Momentum in the U.S. and Abroad

Chart symbolizing progress for same-sex marriage

[See the end of this post for May 20 updates.]

In light of some recent encouraging poll numbers on marriage equality, I’ve updated a March 27 post that summarizes data from a series of 2013 surveys on the issue. You can find that update here: 2013 Polls: At Least Two Thirds of Young Americans Support Marriage Equality.

Of course, the recent good news on marriage hasn’t come only from the polls. Just this month, three states—Delaware, Minnesota, and Rhode Island—have enacted marriage-equality laws. Twelve states in total, plus D.C., have now approved same-sex marriage.
