Celebrating Greenland gay marriage: 12 stunning photos of this vast wilderness

Greenland has become the latest country to pass same-sex marriage equality and offer adoption to gay and lesbian couples.

Parliament agreed 27-0 to the new measures yesterday (26 May) and the law will come into effect on 1 October.

It’s just another reason why this vast wilderness nation of just 57,000 people is one of the most amazing places on Earth. Congratulations Greenland!
