Undoubtedly the biggest advancement in gay rights all year was the US Supreme Court's decision to legalise same-sex marriage across the nation.

And this mural erected before Ireland's successful gay marriage referendum made everyone cry.

Reid Ewing from Modern Family came out.

Casey Conway came out.

A lot of Australians got upset over a film, but the film wasn’t too bothered.

And Barack Obama became the first US president to appear on the cover of an LGBT publication.
