LGBT relationship recogntion map for South America[edit]

Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, and French Guiana no longer have sections because they have full legal protection for LGBT couples. If you have edit suggestions for any of the other countries, please post them under the header for its respective one and provide a suitable source.

You seem to be a go-to guy for this map! Here are some suggested updates:

  • Vietnam apparently has removed fines on marriage, and now allows a form of unregistered cohabitation: Vietnam
  • The 'individual cases of same-sex marriage ring' could probably be used for New Mexico?
  • The brown for 'limitations on freedom of expression' is not specific enough. See discussion here.

My belief is that the color either needs to be removed, of better specified. -- Lejman (talk) 01:23, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Vietnam government's decree issud in September has just removed fines. The bill to give legal recogniton for cohabiting same-sex ouples is still pending before parliament. Ron 1987 (talk) 02:59, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
Agreed with Ron 1987. For example, the U.S. state of Indiana has no recognition of same-sex relationships in any form. However, they do have fines and charges for any clerk that allows one to proceed. Vietnam for all purposes, removed a similar law that would have made the act of calling a same-sex relationship a marriage criminal. At the same time this does not mean we can assume that they legalized any kind of relationship recognition, even if it is perceived as in a de facto sense. If you followed the debate we had on Colombia's Supreme Court ruling, the community decided to hold off on assuming marriage was legal, and evidence shows it is still decided on a case by case basis. I would also like to apologize for being one of the users that jumped the gun and changed some of the maps because of my assumption. The media and my interpretation was wrong. Hence why I'm trying to be more cautious and clear before making future edits. Thanks for the input though! You should post some of them to the file discussion board, more people will be able to see it! :p Chase1493 (talk) 07:32, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Jalisco legalized civil unions. --Prcc27 (talk) 05:20, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Chase. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:59, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
