reports on the progress and challenges since Argentina became the first-country in Latin America with marriage equality. Some 2,697 same-sex couples have been married in the past year..
"That's according to Argentina's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender federation," reports the AP. "It says 60 percent of the weddings were between men, and the province with the most such weddings was Buenos Aires."
