More than 100 same-sex couples participated in a mass wedding at Rio de Janeiro's Superior Court of Justice Sunday. The ceremony has been billed as the world's largest communal gay wedding, Agence France-Presse reports.
Brazil became the third country in Latin America to approve marriage equality when a court ruled that same-sex couples cannot be denied the right to obtain a marriage license. A final law has yet to be passed, but some public offices have already begun accepting marriage applications.
