titleA new poll in the Faroe Islands, an island group under the sovereignty of Denmark halfway between Norway and Iceland, says a large majority supports marriage equality. Pink News reports:

Out of the population of the 50,000 Faroese citizens, 68% said they favoured civil marriage for same-sex couples, meaning in town or city halls, but not in churches or religious organisations, with 27% against and 5% undecided. The survey, conducted by Gallup, on behalf of LGBT Faroe Islands, found that 72% of women, and 65% of men said they supported equal marriage… A proposal to update the current Marriage Act, is to be submitted to the Faroese Parliament after 29 July, at the opening parliamentary session.
