People of the world – can’t possibly imagine a time in Latin America when it will be acceptable to be openly gay? Well, think again! Today, Argentina has officially become the first country in the Latin world to legalize gay marriage! Another victory in the world of equality, despite what the opposition may think. Read the story here.
What about Gays in Paraguay? you might be asking… From what I can tell so far, Paraguay is not quite on the same forward-thinking path as Argentina. Every club or bar I’ve been to where there has been an “assumed gay” they have been pointed out, and whispered about amongst friends. I’ve been told the, “I once had a gay friend,” story more than a few times, usually in a positive light, but still called to attention. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to be THE gay in the bar or in a group of friends, but hopefully other Latin countries, (Paraguay included,) can follow the lead of their southern neighbor and loosen up their “moral codes.”
Argentina, I applaud you!
