A bit of homo history was made yesterday in Uruguay.
Judge Estrella Perez presided over Latin America’s first gay wedding!
Perez officiated the civil union between Adrian Figuera, 38, and actor and theater director Juan Carlos Moretti, 67, in a courtroom before a small group of friends and family, as witnessed by an AFP reporter.
Moretti later told AFP that after living together for 14 years, he and Figuera thought their marriage was “a matter of justice and a step forward for Uruguayan society.”
The event comes four months after Uruguay’s government pushed through new legislation allowing 5-year strong, cohabitating couples the same rights as straight folk.
