Mexico: Lesbian Couple Marries in Guanajuato

Friday, March 21st, 2014

MexicoA same sex couple became the first to marry in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.

On Top Magazine reports:

An unidentified lesbian couple on Tuesday became the first gay couple to marry in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. According to several Mexican outlets, the women sued the state in federal court after they were denied a marriage license. Approximately 30 guests were present as Mary, 34, and Lucha, 32, were declared “a couple legally united in marriage” in a private ceremony held in Leon, the state’s largest city.

One by one, the states of Mexico, like their US counterparts, are slowly accepting marriage equality. How long until the entire country comes around?

Mexico: Supreme Court Says Same Sex Couples Deserve Equal Public Benefits

Friday, January 31st, 2014

MexicoMexico continues to move ahead on LGBT rights.

The Washington Blade reports:

The Mexican Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled the same-sex spouses of those who receive benefits under the country’s social security system must receive the same benefits as their heterosexual counterparts. El Economista, a Mexican newspaper, reported the justices in a 3-2 ruling said the Mexican Social Security Institute – Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social in Spanish – must extend the same benefits that married heterosexual couples receive to gays and lesbians who have either tied the knot or entered into civil unions. Jose Alberto Gomez Barroso, who married his partner in Mexico City in 2012, sought legal recourse through the Mexican judicial system after officials denied his request to add his spouse as a beneficiary under the country’s social security system. A lower court last year dismissed Gomez’s case after he passed away.

Mexico is in a similar position to the US, with a number of states recognizing marriage equality as well as the Federal government. But in Mexico, if you are married in Mexico City, you are married everywhere.

Mexico: First Same-Sex Couple Marries in Jalisco

Monday, December 16th, 2013

MexicoA same-sex couple has married in the Mexican state of Jalisco for the first time.

The Advocate reports:

Zaira de la O and Martha Sandoval sought legal recognition of their relationship through the courts after being denied a marriage license, according to On Top Magazine. Jalisco’s government approved civil unions for same-sex couples on October 30, but the couple was granted a civil marriage through a court injunction. “We are happy, relishing the moment we sign, with the same nerves as any couple about to marry for the first time,” Zaira said to CNN.

We’re thrilled for the happy couple, and hope they will be the first of many. Mexico is following a similar path to the US, where marriage equality is being approved on a state-by-state basis.

Mexico: Senator Seeks to Allow Marriage Equality Nationally

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

MexicoA Mexican senator is proposing the passage of marriage equality bill for the whole country.

Gay Star News reports:

Mexico’s Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex marriage is constitutional and several states now allow same-sex couples to marry but the majority of states have not passed reforms on the issue and so the PDR plans to implement a nation wide reform. PDR Senator Fernando Mayans presented the initiative to his parliamentary group last Thursday and is expected to present the proposal to the Senate today.

Could Mexico beat the United States to full marriage equality?

Mexico: 52% Now Support Marriage Equality

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

titleA new poll in Mexico shows a majority now support marriage equality.

On Top Magazine reports:

According to a Parametria survey conducted in July, 52 percent of respondents support gay marriage, while 44 percent remain opposed. Fifty-two percent of Roman Catholics are also in support. That’s a thirteen point increase in support from a previous poll conducted in December of 2012. Fifty-seven percent of Mexicans (60% of Catholics) support gay troops serving openly in the military. Openly gay politicians are supported 49-45 percent.

And yet, support for gay adoption actually dropped, and 70% are opposed to it in Mexico. So it’s a bit of a mixed bag. We’ve seen this in a number of countries, where people are coming around on marriage, but not on adoption rights. I always thought it would happen the other way around.

Mexico: Gay Flashmob Proposal in Mexico City

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Mexican Wedding ProposalA little happy for your morning.

On Top Magazine reports:

In a video titled Proyecto Triunfo (Project Triumph) posted on YouTube on Tuesday, Pedroluiz Ibarra documents his marriage proposal to Andres Bernardo. We see Ibarra buying the engagement ring and rehearsing choreography with friends. Bernardo is escorted through several rooms as friends dance to Bruno Mars’ Marry You. Near the end of the song, the dancers part and Ibarra walks into the room, lip syncs, “Hey baby; I know I want to marry you; Is it the look in your eyes; Or is it this dancing juice; Who cares, baby; I think I wanna marry you,” gets down on one knee and produces the engagement ring.
