    Wonderful news. Congratulations to the people of Uruguay.

    Could be one amazing week if the French Senate vote as expected tomorrow, and with New Zealand now hot on their heels the UK is beginning to look like we’re dragging our feet.

    Well done, Uruguay? Now lets see if it’s covered in the right wing media and BBC.

    Take note, Tory bigots Loughton and Burrowes and all the other homophobic hate-mongers, especially in the Lords. Two countries in one week. Amazing!

    And last night, France approved the adoption amendment so it looks as though France will be the 13th country this week. Suck on that catholic cult and all of the hate-mongers in France and the UK.

  8. ¡Enhorabuena y felicidades Uruguay!

  9. Fantastic news! Makes our whining, hand-wringing, homophobic politicians look at little backward, don’t you think?

    Watch it live as Uruguay approves and passes equal marriage.

  11. Viva URUGUAY! Next, France, New Zealand, or Grear Britain? …. I wish my country the Philippines will lead same sex marriage in the East but the Catholic Church has some unyielding powers over the govt. But I’m for my fellow LGBT Uruguayans! More power

    Greetings from Kentucky, USA

    1. I am from Kentucky, USA as well and our Legislature has not ever passed one LGBT friendly law (such as any form of discrimination, hate crime or relationship recognition)!!!!!

      Kentucky, the land of the DON’T SAY GAY BILL!

    Vietnam, Nepal, and Taiwan might be ahead of the Philippines in Asia but we will see… The Philippines is predominantly Catholic and most of them are rebels against the church. RCC is a formidable force in Philippine politics, remember the Philippines is now the only country in the world with NO DIVORCE! Goodluck to all gay Filipinos.

    Well done Uruguay, Columbia will be next for South America – along with more and more states to allow SSMs in both Brazil and Mexico to follow!!!!!!

    What a joke Australia is (both politically and socially), you know Australia is way behind and on another planet when you have both South Africa and Columbia ahead on LGBT rights – such as marriage equality!!!!!

    1. Sorry to reain in your parade, but Colombia won’t be next, there’s a harsh opposition at the moment. But we cross our fingers. BTW, I’m colombian
