Liechtenstein has become the last German-speaking country to legalise same-sex marriage in a near-unanimous decision, according to reports. In a significant victory for its LGBTQ+ citizens, the parliament in the European nation – which is bordered by Switzerland and Austria – voted 24-1 in support of marriage equality, local outlet Liechtensteiner Vaterland reported. The country’s support of LGBTQ+ marriage rights follows on from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland’s equal marriage values, having legalised same-sex marriage in 2017, 2019, and 2022, respectively. The Liechtenstein government initially passed the bill for same-sex marriage rights on 8 March this year, while the final reading took place on 16 May in support of the bill.
