Public Defender Eduardo Vega Luna recommended passage of a civil unions bill to protect the rights of gay and lesbian couples.

The Washington Blade reports:

A Peruvian official last week recommended lawmakers in the South American country approve a bill that would allow gays and lesbians to enter into civil unions. Public Defender Eduardo Vega Luna told Congressman Juan Carlos Eguren Neuenschwander, president of the Commission of Justice and Human Rights in the Peruvian Congress, in a March 26 letter that legislators should approve the measure. Vega also told Eguren that lawmakers should also support other efforts that would extend rights to LGBT Peruvians.

It’s amazing that in 2014, there are still so many places where same sex couples have absolutely no rights.
