Switzerland votes to allow same sex marriage. — Civil partnership exists in Switzerland since 2007 but considerable disadvantages remain.
The government and the parliament agreed to introduce same sex marriage and, as expected, it was followed up with an oppositional initiative mainly by the right-wing UDC party. So the people were asked to vote this referendum: advantage for a direct democracy, but sometimes a frustration for societal progress, and in this case for the LGBTI+Q community. However, fortunately the referendum was defeated and by a substantial majority. — YES! —
