Buenos Aires on Monday became the first city in Latin America to allow same-sex couples to register for legal recognition, Agence France-Presse reports. Couples who can prove that they have lived together for at least two years will be able to share labor and social security benefits under the new law. The measure, which was passed by the municipal legislature in December, was signed into law by Mayor Anibal Ibarra.
