Venezuela: Gay Activists Push for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on May 19th, 2013

VenezuelaA group of LGBT activists held a rally in Venezuela Saturday for marriage equality. France24 reports:

Gays and lesbians demonstrated in Venezuela’s capital Saturday to push for an end to discrimination and for civil rights such as same-sex marriage. “In some areas of the capital, two men cannot be seen holdings hands without security ushering them out,” said Cesar Sequera, who leads Diverse Venezuela, among marchers waving signs like “Say yes to inclusion.”

Argentina (and probably now Brazil) recognize marriage equality – could Venezuela be South America’s #3?

    Don’t forget Uruguay. Also, though not an independent country, French Guiana will get marriage equality under the new law.

  2. I don´t think Venezuela, my country could be any soon the fourth country in Southamerica aproving same sex marriage. Actually, the civil code reform was announced to start on 2014. Prior to that, only lobbying and search for support.

  3. ojala eso se cumpla en nuestro pais y se acabe de una buena ves la homofobia

    Uruguay was number 2 and Brazil number three. That means Venezuela could become number four.
