Latin America: Uruguay is the second country to authorise homosexual marriage.

«Uruguay has become the second Latin-American country to permit gay marriage, after the Chamber of Deputies has definitively approved, yesterday evening, the reform that had already been discussed by Montevideo’s Senate» (ANSA).

The «Egalitarian Marriage Act» has been presented by the Frente Amplio (the left wing coalition currently in power, also sustained by some opposition representatives) and it has been approved with 71 votes in favour (out of 92). Now it needs to be promulgated by the president.
