Introduction Same-sex marriage is a very controversial topic which seems to have affected the world for many years. Many people do not believe that same-sex marriage should be legalised, and they protest against it, although; many people have come to accept same-sex marriage and believe that any person should be able to love who they love. Same-sex marriage is constantly spoken about all around the world as many places are beginning to act to make same-sex marriage legal. This has led to cities holding pride events and showing their support for the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and others) community, on the other hand, these events have also caused riots against same-sex marriage being legalised. Same-sex marriage affects everyone in all walks of life with people having relatives and friends who are part of the community, same-sex marriage has become more accepted by many over time, but it is still a big and controversial topic in the present day.
