Albania To Legalise Same-Sex Marriage
Albanian Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, has proposed the nationwide legalisation of same-sex marriage last week. This would be a massive step forward for the country, where homosexuality was illegal as recent as 1995.
The move has surprised even gay rights groups, who had been fighting in smaller steps—most recently calling for laws against workplace discrimination.
Of course, there will still be a lot of work to be done in order to change deeply held misconceptions about gay people in Albania, but if all goes as it should, soon the country will achieve a level of equal rights matched only by the awesomeness of their flag!
