I was in Buenos Aires last week for a gay travel conference during with the president of Argentina signed into law Argentina’s same-sex marriage bill. This is the first country in Latin America to provide equal marriage rights to same-sex partners.
I will be posting an article about Buenos Aires soon — there were so many incredible discoveries to share — but I wanted to share this bit of exciting news. It’s not every day that you get to see a president provide the LGBT community a fundamental right. She had to battle the Catholic Church, which was (unsurprisingly) dead set against this law. Her speech was inspirational. This is what I call true leadership. I was there. I still get tingly thinking about it!
