After Greece voted to legalise same-sex marriage this week, you may be wondering which countries across the world also have marriage equality.

Luckily, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation have come up with a handy map to show the places that currently allow same-sex marriage.

According to the HRC Foundation, which “tracks developments in the legal recognition of same-sex marriage around the world”, same-sex marriage is legal in 36 countries (including Greece now) in the world out of a total 195 countries which isn’t the best ratio – only 18.4% of countries have marriage equality.

These are the countries where same-sex marriage is currently legal: Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Uruguay.
