LGBTQ+ liberation

On April 1st 2001, the Netherlands became the first country IN THE WORLD to legalise same-sex marriage. That day, the second the clock struck 12, the mayor of Amsterdam officiated four same-sex marriages after becoming a registrar specifically for that reason. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

 

If that didn’t make your day, here are a few more highlights from the progressive and proud Netherlands:

 

  • Lesbian couples can access IVF.
  • Same sex adoption is allowed.
  • Homosexual activity is legal and has been since 1811. To put that into perspective, King George III was ruling GB at the time. Wowza.
  • Not only is homosexual activity legal but it’s also illegal for people to give you grief about it, according to the Equal Treatment Act of 1994.

On behalf of the LGBT community, we'd like to thank the Netherlands for recognising that we really aren't asking for much!
