Uruguay is expected to debate legislation which would legalize gay marriage before the end of the year.
Paul Maqueira of the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC) told El Pais that an initial draft of the measure had already been prepared.
“The idea is to promote a marriage equality project so that gay couples have equal access to marriage as heterosexuals,” he said. Maqueira declined to say when the proposal might reach lawmakers but said he felt this would happen “before the end of the year.”
