Gay Marriage in Argentina is Finally Legal

Gay pride flag waved in front of the Congress building in Buenos Aires

Argentina is the first Latin American country to legalize gay marriage.

The Senate passed the same-sex marriage bill in a 33-27 vote (3 absentions); now all that’s left is for the President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to sign the passed bill.

Keep in mind that Argentina is predominantly [90%] a Roman Catholic country (just like the rest of Latin America) and there is a huge amount of opposition from the Catholic Church.

The first gay marriage in Argentina is scheduled to take place on August 13 between two men in their 60s. See u then 🙂
