On May 17, 2004, Massachusetts began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Since then, more states have followed suit, and public support has increased.

Here's a look at same-sex marriage today:

?17 states, plus Washington, D.C., allow same-sex marriage.

? The exact number of legally married same-sex couples is not known, due to incomplete records in some states. One estimate put the number of married same-sex couples at between 100,000 to 150,000, according to the Williams Institute at UCLA, which used Pew Research Center and Gallup data from June-Dec. 2013.

?In 2014, 54% of Americans supported same-sex marriage, according to Pew. In 1996, 27% supported same-sex marriage.

?In the USA, 3.5% of adults identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, according to a 2013 analysis by the Williams Institute at UCLA.
