Same-sex marriage has been legal in the Pitcairn Islands since 15 May 2015, despite the fact that there are no same-sex couples living on the island.[1][2] An ordinance to legalise such marriages was unanimously approved by the territory's legislature, and signed by the Governor Jonathan Sinclair on 5 May. It was published on 13 May 2015.[1][2][3][4]
