Cheers México!

The post I had been writing is officially getting pushed to make room for this one.

I’m happy to say that lawmakers on Mexico City –my home city, passed a bill that legalizes same sex marriage. This measure changes the definition of marriage to mean “the free uniting of two people,” and allows same sex marriages the same rights as heterosexuals. Including the adoption of children.

There are many things I think Mexico gets wrong, and needs to fix. But right now I feel proud and happy that my gay friends there are finally getting their rights recognized.
