Did you now that Same Sex Couples receive the same Immigration benefits like hetero sexual couples?
Yes, you can file to adjust your status if you can prove a bonafide marriage to your spouse regardless of sex.
In many countries and cultures, same sex relationships are not often recognized and sometimes have fatal consequences.
Side note: If you are afraid of persecution for your sexual orientation and you are currently in the U.S, you may be eligible for Asylum.
What is Bonafide Marriage?
The true test for marriage based immigration is whether the couple can show that the union is not solely for immigration benefits. A couple will need to show joint-
Affidavits from Friends and family
Photographs documenting relationship..etc.
In addition to all these documents, a same sex couple will need to show a valid marriage license. This means that the state where you got married should recognize same sex marriage. Civil unions will not be sufficient for Immigration benefits.
Also, if one partner, especially intending immigrant was in a heterosexual marriage or relationship in the past, that could raise questions.
If you are Bisexual, be prepared to answer questions about your prior relationships.
Marriage based Green card can take 10-24 months depending on whether your spouse is a US Citizen or Green Card holder.
