A Pew Research Center report evaluating support for same-sex marriage in 24 countries around the world shows how it differs based region, religion, and other factors.
Sweden leads the way, with 92% of respondents backing marriage equality, according to the research. Nigeria, meanwhile, is at the other end of the spectrum, with just 2% of the population in support of marriage rights for queer people.
In addition to Sweden’s pro-marriage stance, the country is closely followed by the Netherlands (89%), Spain (87%), France (82%) and Germany (80%). In the United Kingdom, 73% of adults support gay marriage, but, in Italy, gay marriage, which has been a headline in the news and politics since the election of Giorgia Meloni, is not legal, despite 74% of adults being in favor of it.
In the United States, support for gay marriage is at 63%, but the support is fragmented depending on political beliefs, religion, and other areas. Democrats are nearly two times more likely than Republicans to support marriage equality, 82% vs. 44%.
In Asia, marriage support sits at 75% among adults in Australia and 74% in Japan, though it is still not legal in Japan. In India, 53% of adults are in favor of same-sex marriage, which is currently in the process of being decided in their Supreme Court.
