I’m very excited– being a newly minted voter within the last year, I will be able to participate in the 2016 US presidential election; my very first one! Also notable are the British elections coming up in May 2015, as well as French elections in 2017. I can’t say I know of any others, but please do mention them if they’re coming up.
What effect will these elections (and others, if they’re coming up) have on the LGBTQIA populations of their respective countries? Are marriage rights in the US on too much of a roll to be stopped by any president now? If yes, then what will the future look like for other rights that have still been left up in the air? If you’re not American, how does it look from where you are?
