Urugay och (kanske) Brasilien planerar tillåta homoäktenskap.

Argentina blev första landet i Latinamerika att tillåta homoäktenskap. I år kanske flera andra länder följer efter. Om Brasilien får en könsneutral äktenskapslag skulle det givetvis påverka hela regionen.

Från en artikel 28 mars på HBT-siten On Top Magazine .
Brazil's first openly gay lawmaker, Jean Wyllys, is widely expected on Tuesday to introduce legislation that would legalize gay marriage.

Wyllys, who parlayed a 2005 Big Brother Brazil win into a political career, will introduce the legislation with the support of leaders from two countries which have already approved the institution.

Argentine National Deputy Vilma Ibarra, who played a prominent role in last year's effort to legalize gay marriage in her country, and the Spanish socialist Pedro Zerolo will assist Wyllys in the effort. Spain legalized marriage for gay and lesbian couples in 2005.

Currently, gay couples cannot legally marry in Brazil, where marriage is regulated by the federal government, not the states. Courts, however, have ruled that gay couples are de facto partners, a status that grants many benefits similar to marriage.

Neither the country's constitution nor its laws ban gay marriage, but both fail to acknowledge it officially.

After announcing his plans, Wyllys, a member of the socialist-inspired P-SOL party, received homophobic threats on social networks, including Twitter. The threats have not stopped at Brazil's border; several came from the UK and the United States.

On Sunday he tweeted to his more than 31,000 followers: “The psychoanalyst Helio Pellegrino said that a person who is blinded by hatred and jealousy is doomed to miss his life. A good lesson for you!”
Jean Wyllys (bilden till den här bloggposten) är från vänstersocialistiska partiet P-SOL, ett oppositionsparti som fick 1,2 % i senaste valet 2010 till Câmara dos Deputados, en av parlamentets kamrar.. Som kuriosa kan jag avslöja att parlamentet i Brasilien har 27 (sic!) partier.

Om det är ovisst om det i år blir majoritet i parlamentet i Brasilien för en könsneutral äktenskapslag är det desto säkrare i Urugay. Regeringspartiet FA meddelade redan förra året att den planerade införa en könsneutral äktenskapslag. Från siten Equaljus 12 april.
- The ruling party of the President Pepe Mújica, the left-winged Frente Amplio ("Broad Front" in English), have announced they will introduce a bill on same-sex marriage (the so called "egalitarian marriage")....

Uruguay has recognized since 2008 to same-sex cohabitants identical rights as opposite-sex cohabitants through the Act on de facto unions (on EJ database). Uruguay has recognized since 2008 to same-sex cohabitants identical rights as opposite-sex cohabitants through the Act on de facto unions, and joint adoption right for same-sex couples was introduced a year later, in 2009 (Frente Amplio Report in Spanish). The introduction of same-sex marriage would make Uruguay the second country in Latin America, together with Argentina, to amend the marriage institution in order to allow same-sex couples to marry.
Även två delstater i Mexico erkänner juridiskt samkönade relationer. Mexico City har en könsneutral äktenskapslag och Coahuila (granne med Texas) en partnerskapslag. Både Colombia och Ecuador har en könsneutral sambolag.

Brasilien, Argentina, Uruguay och Mexico City tillåter samkönade par att adoptera.
