One Step Closer to Marriage in Mexico


Gay people in Mexico City are one step closer to marriage equality now that the city put the law passed earlier this month formally on the books, the Los Angeles Times reports. The law, which also grants same-sex couples the right to adopt children, was published in the official government newspaper Tuesday and will go into effect in 45 days.

The National Action Party, which controls the federal government, has joined the Catholic Church in condemning the Mexico City law. We have seen with impotence, pain, and consternation ... [this] blow to the most intimate structure of Mexican families, the institution over which our nation has built its rich history, values, and spirituality," Cardinal Norbeto Rivera said.

On Monday two Argentine men, Jose Maria Di Bello and Alex Freyre, were wed in what was being billed as the first same-sex marriage in Latin America.
