Gay Guide Caribbean - Puerto Rico

In June 2015 the overseas United States territory of Puerto Rico decided to allow same-sex marriage. After the Supreme Court ruling that brought same-sex marriage to all 50 states, Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla said that Puerto Rico will follow suit. Puerto Rico is neither a state of the US, nor independent, but 'freely associated' with the US. The Puertoricans are US-citizens but they are not entitled to vote in US-elections. This political position 'in between' and considerable customs privileges ensure economical prosperity for this Caribbean island. Gay activities take place only in the capital, San Juan.
