Echos of the recent B+B case. Chile is certainly warming to LGBT people.
The whole of Latin America is moving in the same direction. Great to see isn’t it? :-)
Yes, it’s encouraging. But Latin America has a serious problem with violence, especially against trans people in Brazil.
There has been a bit of good progress in Chile recently for a very Conservative Catholic country!
Chile only just enacted anti-discrimination laws and hate crime laws!
Without this there would be no protection at all. Thank goodness this new law was enacted to aventually and hopefully help bring an end to discrimination and homophobia!
I hope Chile (where my sister-in-law was born by the way) will soon enact de facto relationship recognition or some other form of relationship recognition (such as civil union or a relationship register). Same sex marriage is out of the question in Chile for at least 10 years!
Hopefully sooner, for Chile just being next door to ultra-progressive Argentina!
