Right before New Year’s, Queerty reported on how Cancun was positioning itself as a gay-wedding mecca, thanks to a loophole in Mexican law.
Well, it looks like that’s not going to happen—at least not anytime soon.
On Top reports that the nuptials of six queer couples, set for later this month, have been put on hold while Quintana Roo Secretary of State Lois Gonzalez Flores reviews the legality of gay marriages.
Hotels and hospitality agents in Cancun were hoping to attract international gay couples looking to wed after after a lawyer successfully argued that since the law didn’t specifically ban same-sex marriages they were legal. (Mexico’s legal code doesn’t reference the gender of marriage applicants.)
Right now Mexico City is the only region in the country to explicitly pass marriage equality.
