¡Enhorabuena, Ciudad de México!

Via the AP:

Mexico City on Monday became Latin America’s first municipality to approve gay marriage, an aide to a city lawmaker told AFP.

“It was approved overall by 39 votes in favor and 20 against, with five abstentions,” said a spokesman for the bill’s chief sponsor, assemblyman Davi Razu.

Spokesman Oscar Oliver said city legislators were now taking up a measure in the bill that would allow married same-sex couples to adopt children. The new measure modified a civil union law already on the books in Mexico City, as in other Latin American nations including Uruguay and Colombia. In Argentina the Supreme Court is to rule on a court-approved gay marriage that was challenged earlier this month.

Hopefully, wedded bliss will afford some couples momentary distracton from the constant terror of a “low intensity civil war” between the drug cartels and lawless military.
