Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, just signed papers making them a legally married throuple.
“We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” Prada announced in a video shared by Colombian media earlier this week.
The papers were signed on Monday with a solicitor in the city of Medellin and establish the men as a family unit with inheritance rights.
They are the first legally recognized polyamorous family in Colombia.
Lawyer and gay rights activist German Rincon Perfetti tells the AFP, “It is a recognition that other types of families exist.”
Same-sex marriage was legalized in Colombia in April 2016, making it the fourth South American country to do so, after Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay.
Now that the papers have been signed, the trio says they’re planning a marriage celebration, which they promise will be an “artistic and cultural event.” Then, of course, comes the honeymoon!
Congrats to the happy trouple!
