Gay marriage bill proposed in Argentina

A bill is currently being considered by Argentina’s legislature that would permit same-sex marriage rights throughout the country. Though two regions in the country allow for civil unions, Argentine homosexual couples do have some important rights including adoption, inheritance, and survivor pensions.

The rights of homosexuals have gained more prominence in Latin America over the past year. Same-sex civil unions have been okayed in several areas in Mexico, while Colombian courts ruled in favor of inheritance rights for some gay couples.
