In which countries is Gay Marriage legal?

i need to know cuz I hate homophobes. I heard England is being legalized and I always wanted to go to England and I might move there. But I want to move somewhere when it's legal?

You're going to find people who aren't accepting of it everywhere you go. If you live in the U.S it's becoming more and more accepted every day, so I don't think it's necessary to move.

It doesn't mean people are homophobes because they are against gay marriage. If you want people to be open-minded, it begins with you.

Why isn't a desire to prevent people the civil right to marry whom they love, considered homophobic?

Exactly- trying to prevent the civil rights of a group just because they are gay IS homophobic. And how is it open-minded to try and remove rights from those you don't like?

As of 19 August 2013, fifteen countries (Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Uruguay) and several sub-national jurisdictions (parts of Mexico and the United States) allow same-sex couples to marry. A law has been passed by the United Kingdom, effective in England and Wales, which is expected to be fully in force in 2014. Polls in various countries show that there is rising support for legally recognizing same-sex marriage across race, ethnicity, age, religion, political affiliation, and socioeconomic status.

It was legalised in New Zealand a couple of months ago.

And just two days ago same sex marriage became law in the Australian Capital Territory (which is something like your DC). That one is still up in their air, however, because the Federal Government immediately challenged its legality in the High Court of Australia -- and that case may begin as early as today.

There are fourteen states in the US plus DC that have legalized gay marriage, plus those couples can now receive federal benefits thanks to the dismantling of DOMA.

Though you'll never get away from bigots no matter where you go, why not just move to one of those states?

You won't find it in Middle Eastern countries for sure.
