    Well done, Uruguay. To think, even straights can form a civil union. What does that say about the UK? Not much. Uruguay will probably beat us to same-sex marriage I wouldn’t mind betting, if Denmark doesn’t do it before them.

    Damn. Almost makes me want to move to Uruguay! What a country! Nice to see some real progress being made in South America. I’m originally from Peru, which I’m pretty sure is quite a way behind Uruguay on equal rights.

  3. I love Uruguy, such a nice and friendly country. If you are planning a trip to the south, choose Uruguay. Plus is safe.

  4. WELL DONE URUGUAY!!! :)

    This leads the way for South America. Uruguay’s international reputation will have greatly improved because of this. Excellent decision!

    Really, today I feel so proud of my country and our government that I am kind of speechless by such an event. I hope America Latina keeps growing and improving in this field. Big hug to all of you!!!

  6. Even a South American country can be ahead of stupid AFRAID OF GAY ADOPTIONS (Florida epecially) Americans!!!! Way to go Uruguay!!!!

    I Remember an episode of the simpsons when Homer Simpson (from the Australia relations episode) “look at this country you-are-gay”!!!!

  7. Uruguay Status

    PROGRESS SO FAR:

    Homosexuality legalized – DONE (in 1934)
    Hate crime and anti-discrimination legislation – DONE (in 2002)
    Civil unions – DONE (in 2007)
    Repeal the ban on gays in the military – DONE (in 2009)
    Full joint Adoption – DONE (in 2009)

    YET TO BE DONE:

    Marriage – Pending in Senate

  8. UK does have full joint adoption for same-sex couples since 2004!!!!

    Uruguay and the UK are NEARLY on the same level. They both still ban marriage for same-gender couples.

    Uruguay do not have “IVF parentage” – which the UK does since 2009!!!!!!

    So the UK is still SLIGHTLY ahead of Uruguay!!!!
