Video: First Same-Sex Marriages Take Place in Mexico City

Mcity

The first same-sex marriages took place in Mexico City yesterday as their marriage equality law went into effect, the L.A. Times reports:

"Vazquez and Lol Kin Castaneda on Thursday became the first gay couple to marry in Mexico under a new law that allows same-sex couples to wed and to adopt children. The law was passed by the Mexico City legislature in December and applies only to the capital. It is the most far-reaching gay-rights law in Latin America and one of several measures that have put the city and its leaders at odds with the more conservative country. 'This is a historic day,' presiding judge Hegel Cortes said shortly after pronouncing Vazquez and Castaneda 'legitimately united in matrimony.' Three other same-sex couples also tied the knot."

  2. Congratulations!
    Mexico has de facto nationwide gay marriage since all the other states have to recognize the marriages performed in Mexico City.

    Unlike Amerika. And then you wonder who are the ''third world'' countries.
