Gay marriage is popping up all over Mexico.
First marriage for same-sex couples was legalized in Mexico City in March 2010 with those unions recognized throughout the country. Next came the announcement that “thanks to a legal gap in the Civil Code,” marriage equality would be extended to lesbian and gay couples in Cancun (and other parts of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo located in eastern Mexico on the Atlantic coast.)
Specifically, the law allows marriage for “people,” without specifying gender.
A local activist, Patricia Novelo said gay and lesbian marriages are possible in Quintana Roo, “thanks to a legal gap in the Civil Code, which only makes mention of people interested in getting married, without specifying their gender,” according to HispanicallySpeakingNews,
