Uruguay: Senate to Vote on Marriage Equality Bill Today

Written by scott on April 2nd, 2013

It looks like Uruguay may very well become the next country to embrace marriage equality, with a Senate vote planned for today. The Washington Blade reports:

Uruguayan lawmakers on Tuesday are expected to approve a bill that would allow same-sex couples to marry in the South American country. The vote in the Uruguay Senate will take place nearly four months after the country’s House of Representatives backed the measure by an 81-6 vote margin. President Jose Mujica has said he will sign it into law.

Argentina, next-door, already has marriage equality, and another South American Country, Colombia, is also considering it.
