Where the U.S. Stands on Marriage Equality and Bans: MAP


A new map from HRC indicates the states with marriage equality (solid blue), civil unions (lighter blue), domestic partnerships (lighter blue striped), constitutional marriage bans (gray), laws banning marriage equality (red), neither marriage equality nor a ban (turquoise).

They also write:

As we approach a Supreme Court decision on the Perry case, we’ve put pen to paper and calculated what the various percentages of Americans living in marriage equality states would be if the Court returns marriage to California: 30 percent. If the Court were to find in favor of the “9 State Solution” (now seven states because of marriage victories in two states), it would be 41 percent. Obviously, if the Court were to find in favor of a fundamental right, it would be 100 percen.
