In Argentina, where marriage equality is local-option, Buenos Aires legalized same-sex marriage. Alex Freyre and Jose Maria di Bello, a gay couple, applied for their marriage license. But before they could marry, a judge stepped in and stopped the marriage.
Argentina’s National Institute Against Xenophobia and Racism helped the couple and referred them to the gay-friendly governor of Argentina’s southernmost state, Tierra del Fuego. The governor issued Freyre and Maria di Bello a marriage license and this week they were married.
