URUGUAY-GAY-MARRIAGE-LAW

Rodrigo Borda (R) and Sergio Miranda are congratulated by relatives and friends after getting married at the civil registry in Montevideo on August 22, 2013. Uruguay, the second nation in Latin America to recognize same-sex unions, saw its first gay marriage on August 5, but it was in a rush and very intimate event for a man on his death bed. Borda and Miranda’s marriage, though technically the second, is the first through normal procedure. AFP PHOTO / Pablo PORCIUNCULA
