Argentine Activists Marry In Madrid As Protest

We had no idea activism could be so glamorous!

Rather than endorsing Argentina’s lackluster civil union laws, activist duo Cesar Cigliutti and Marcelo Suntheim hopped a plane to gay marrying Spain.

“We came to Spain because there is a marriage law here that allows the union of homosexuals and in Argentina there isn’t,” Cigliutti, president of the Argentine Homosexual Community, told The Associated Press from Madrid.

The newlyweds celebrated with friends Monday before a honeymoon in Egypt.

Okay, so from a really gay friendly to one that’s not so keen on the queens… Doesn’t that sort of defeat the purpose?
