smallest same sex country


The Pitcairn Islands, which is a country in-itself and consists of group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific has passed the Same Sex Marriage and Civil Partnership Ordinance 2015, which explicitly allows for same-sex marriages among the island nation’s 56 inhabitants.

The four islands – Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie, and Oeno – are spread over several hundred miles of ocean and have a total land area of about 47 square kilometres (18 sq mi). Only Pitcairn, the second largest island measuring about 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) from east to west, and is  inhabited by the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and the Tahitians (or Polynesians) who accompanied them, an event retold in numerous books and films.

Congratulations to the Pitcairn Islands!  

There is no such thing as a small victory.
