Argentina Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

by Jason Stotts

Yesterday, Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage:

[The new law] gives same-sex couples equal marriage rights, including the ability to adopt children.

The law was backed by the center-left government of President Cristina Kirchner, who has said she will sign it. [CNN]

Congrats to all of the Argentinian gays and bi’s who now have the legal right to love whoever they want and express that love in a formal union.

    You might be interested to know that the “obscenity” charges against John Stagliano were dismissed. A victory for free expression.

    Thanks for the heads up! I was waiting to hear about that, but didn’t realize the ruling had already come down.
