A lesbian couple in Quito, Ecuador, is taking their fight for marriage equality to the civil registrar’s office. The Advocate reports:
A lesbian couple in Ecuador who engaged in an argument with President Rafael Correa on Twitter applied for a marriage license in Quito on Monday, beginning the fight toward establishing legal marriage equality in their country. Pamela Troya and Gabriela Correa submitted their application with the civil registrar, and though it is expected to be rejected, they can then wage a legal challenge to the country’s marriage ban, Buzzfeed reports.
Currently only Uruguay and Argentina recognize full marriage equality in South America, although Colombia may be in the brink.
