Tens Of Thousands Rally In Support Of Marriage Equality In Switzerland

Tens of thousands in Switzerland expressed their support for marriage equality ahead of a national referendum on September 26.

From NBC News:

Public broadcaster SRF reported that tens of thousands participated in the Zurich Pride parade which had the slogan “You can do it. Marriage for everyone now.”

So far, same-sex couples in Switzerland can only get official approval for civil unions, which are not on equal footing as marriages.

If a majority votes for the legalization of same-sex marriage in Switzerland this would also allow couple to adopt children.

In addition, lesbian couples would have easier access to sperm donations if they wanted to start a family and it would be easier for foreign partners to get Swiss citizenship.
