Today is an historic day for Mexico as Mexico City legalized same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex couples.
By a vote of 39 to 20 [5 abstentions] the city's legislative assembly approved revisions to the civil code to permit same-sex marriages. The revision will change the definition of marriage to a union between two people, instead of the current version, which specifies a union between a man and a woman.
This amazing news comes just two years after the legislators approved same-sex civil unions. Mexico City is becoming the second major Latin American city to legalize same-sex marriage after Buenos Aires, Argentina.
