For the Finnish Legislation on Gender Neutral Marriage
« on: November 03, 2014, 01:28:09 am »
Em hotep!

In the next couple of weeks, the Parliament of Finland will vote on making our marriage legislation gender neutral. This would allow same gender couples the same marriage rights than different gender ones, as well as the right to apply for adoption as a couple.

Currently, we have an option for "registered partnership" for same gender couples, which does not include the automatical right to a shared family name, the right to apply for adoption as a couple (though it was recently added that one partner in a registered partnership can apply to adopt the children of their partner), and also forces people to out themselves as "gay" every time they fill an official form or something like that (they have separate boxes you have to check for marriage and registered partnership).

Last year, a massive campaign was started to get the legislation changed, as a previous attempt by 75-ish MP:s didn't fall through. The "Tahdon 2013" ("I do 2013") campaign, which had to gather 50 000 signatures over six months to get its proposal processed in the Parliament, actually got over 150 000 signatures in a couple of days. After being processed by several parliamentary boards, it will now be voted on in the big hall.

I ask for all your prayers for the passing of this law - not only would it provide more equality, it would let all the people who have campaigned very hard to move on to new projects, as marriage equality is far from being the only LGBTIQA struggle here in Finland.
