A large rally wound its way through the streets of Lima this weekend to support a proposed civil unions bill.

On Top Magazine reports:

Roughly 3,000 people on Saturday rallied in support of a proposed civil unions bill in Peru. Among those marching through the streets of Lima was the bill’s sponsor, Congressman Carlos Bruce. “This march is part of human diversity and our constitution allows this diversity to exist,” Bruce is quoted as saying by La Republica. “Now, what happens is that the law does not allow two people of the same sex to join with all the protection of the state.”

Another South American state considers relationship recognition for its LGBT citizens. It’s not marriage equality, but it’s a step.
