Switzerland is changing its laws to allow same sex couples to (sort of) marry. This has opened up a whole new avenue of approach for settling in Switzerland. 
In my country Brazil, homosexuals who can prove their relationship is stable are supposed to be treated by the government same from a married couple in cases of death or retirement and this policy allows people in same-sex relationships to declare their partners as dependents on tax returns.

SwitzerIand had a nationwide voting on June 5, 2005, and the Swiss people approved by 58% a registered partnership law, giving same-sex couple same rights and protections as the heterosexual couples, with the excepting of adopting children and taking the same surname. In regards next of kin status, taxation, social security, insurance, and shared possession of a home, same-sex couples are get the same rights as married couples.

If you’ve tried everything else, you can always fish for someone who is already resident in Switzerland and has a sense of humor and ask him or her to PACse with you. The success of this strategy is uncertain.
