Police in the Faroe Islands estimate than 10 percent of the population took part in an LGBT equality march on July 27th, reports Gay Star News.

Of the island’s 50,000 people, it is thought that 5,000 took part in Sunday’s march.

A bill providing for same-sex marriage was defeated in March even though polls have shown that public support is as high as 68%.  

The Faroe Islands, an autonomous country and a dependency of Denmark, is the only Nordic country other than Finland that does not allow same-sex marriage.

    Unfortunately for Rick, the Danish don’t put a great deal of importance on masculinity. The butts may be great, but that part of the world would be inhospitable to homophobic wimps like Rick. They’re much better off without him.

    It is so good of Towleroad to hire the mentally handicapped to write articles! Poor Jim Redmond can’t write 2 consistent sentences. Note how the headline reports that this was a “march for LGBTI equality.” But in the very first sentence, the march has changed to one for “LGBT equality.” What happened to equality for the vast intersexed population of the Faroe Islands? Who is looking out for that vast army of Faroe-ian hermaphrodites? Clearly, gay people have achieved full equality in all aspects of life, and so can afford to make hermaphrodite issues their top priority.

    Well for once in the history of towleroad I agree with Rick. Had an ongoing fling with a Norweigan once and his ass was (&I’m sure still is) too luscious for words.

    Now then, having read what the Faroe Islands get up to in the ocean is a bummer. It’s one of those things with Nordic countries, they seem perfect except for the whaling. It’s like Canada and baby seals. You’re like “great country but whaaa????

    Anyhow, good for these citizens for coming out to march for equality.
