Equality comes to Mexico

Last month, Argentina almost became the first part of Latin America to legalise same-sex marriage, after a judge in Buenos Aires ruled that it was legal. Unfortunately, the ruling was swiftly overturned and is now before the country's Supreme Court. While they've been dithering, Mexico City has beaten them to it, with Federal District legislators voting 39-20 in favour of equality. Better, they're now working on a same-sex adoption law as well.

So, on social issues, New Zealand is now behind Mexico. Makes you proud to be a kiwi, neh?
