Here at Gay Star News we think it’s important to celebrate any country that takes the important step of legalizing gay marriage, no matter how big or small.
The same goes for autonomous countries such as the Faroe Islands, found in the North Atlantic midway between Iceland and Norway.
Technically part of the Kingdom of Denmark, the region’s 50,000-strong population are this week celebrating the official introduction of same-sex marriage.
A poll in 2014 found two-thirds of the islands’ inhabitants believe same-sex couples should be able to wed.
Here, we celebrate the news with 18 dramatic shots of otherworldly landscapes in this truly unique destination…

@thegnivera with my final image of Tori. After finishing kayaking, I asked Tori to sit for a quick portrait on the beach with the village of Leynar behind him. It’s amazing how many outdoor activities you can do while you are here. If you want to ready more you can head over to my blog.⠀ ⠀ #Faroeislands #Visitfaroeislands
@airpixels here again with my third post ! To find a waterfall in Faroe Islands is not something rare. Its more like getting shocked when you cant see one. But when i found this one connected to a black beach running straight into the ocean i became speechless. @airpixels #visitfaroeislands #faroeislands
Hey everyone, @brokensundowns here. I’ll be sharing some of my photographs from the Faroes this week. This decrepit stone building is one of many older buildings scattered around the islands. In earlier times, homes were often made out of whatever nature could provide, including washed up driftwood or stones such as this. #Faroeislands #Visitfaroeislands
