Uruguay gay marriage bill approved in lower house

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-20691378


Gay rights campaigners now hope the bill will pass in the Senate


Uruguay has moved closer to legalising gay marriage after the lower house of Congress approved a law making all marriages equal.

The measure, which was passed by a wide margin, now goes to the Senate where it is expected to be approved.

It would make Uruguay the second Latin American country after Argentina to allow gay marriages.

Same-sex marriages are legal in Mexico City, while civil unions are recognised in several countries in the region.
