For the first time, IBGE analyzed data on gay marriage in Brazil


Due to the 2013 resolution of the National Justice Council, which emphasizes that all registry offices must carry out civil unions between people of the same sex, it was possible for the IBGE to include such marriages for the first time. According to the survey, gay marriages represent 0,35% of the total number of straight marriages. They occurred 52% (1926) among women and 48% (1.775) among men. The average age is 37 for men and 35 for women. The majority of marriages took place in the Southeast – 2.408 – with São Paulo accounting for 1.945 of them, Rio de Janeiro with 211 and Minas Gerais accounted for 209 marriages. The seven states in the Northern Region together registered 56 records. And Acre had only one during 2013.
