Photos: First Gay Couples Wed in Argentina Under New Law

Arg1

The first legal same-sex marriages have taken place in Argentina under a law signed by President Cristina Fernandez on July 21.

Jose Luis Navarro and Miguel Angel Calefato (above), together for 27 years, were the first to marry, in the northern province of Santiago del Estero. 

The first to marry in the capital of Buenos Aires were Argentine actor Ernesto Larrese and his partner, actor manager Alejandro Vannelli (below).

In the months and years before the legislature approved marriage equality, several other couples — Norma Castillo and Ramona Arevalo, and Alex Freyre and José Maria Di Bello — married in challenges to the country's laws, but those attempts were annulled.

In mid-June, Mexico City offered a free honeymoon to the first couple to marry under Argentina's new law. I hope Navarro and Calefato take them up on it.
