titleA new study shows just how many people now live in countries (or in the US, states) that have full marriage equality – it’s almost 10% of the global population. Queerty reports:

According to Australia’s Melbourne Ports Residents for Marriage Equality (MPRME), globally there are now 607 million people living in jurisdictions with full marriage equality. That number represents 8.6% of the total world population. “What this shows it that marriage equality is not just a temporary fad,” said MPRME spokesperson, Tony Pitman. “It’s a wave of equality that’s sweeping the globe. It’s a fundamental human rights reform that’s an inevitable part of social progress.”

That’s amazing – now if we could just get China and India on board… :P
