Mexico City Council legally recognizes same-sex marriage

Posted on 21 Dec 2009 at 3:39pm

The Mexico City Council has just adopted legislation giving legal recognition to same-sex marriage there. The original bill included language prohibiting lesbian and gay couples from adopting but almost immediately afterward, the council approved a councilman’s petition to remove that language and lift that ban.

The new law applies only to Mexico City.
