Argentina’s First Gay Wedding Today Is Off!

Alex Freyre and Jose Maria di Bello

Just when you thought Argentina was going to beat America to full gay marriage rights, a judge threw a sock of quarters into plans for the first gay wedding in Buenos Aires. Which was supposed to go down today

Despite a court ruling in favor of a gay couple’s marriage rights, and a promise from the city’s Mayor Mauricio Macri to leave the ruling unchallenged, another judge has issued an injunction halting the ceremony so the matter can, uh, be further reviewed — but not outright canceled, because the new judge doesn’t have the authority.

Which means Alex Freyre and Jose Maria di Bello big World AIDS Day wedding is a no go. At least when it comes to its legality.
