An Argentinian judge has given a second gay couple permission to get married.

Judge Elena Liberatori ruled that the unnamed men in Buenos Aires were exercising their rights, AFP reports.

In December, Jose Maria Di Bello and Alex Freyre became the first gay couple in Latin America to marry.

They wed in Ushuaia, the capital of Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego state where sympathetic state officials backed their bid.

They wore red sashes around their suits to support HIV awareness and the ceremony was witnessed by state and federal officials.

The only place where gay marriage is legal in Latin America is Mexico City, although the law does not come into force until March.
