…As the first Latin American country to recognise same-sex marriage, there was no better place than Argentina to hold a discussion on future policy.
Based in Buenos Aires, Marcelo Ferreyra from the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission attended the event and told OUTinPerth the region was very contrasting on gay rights.
"The region is very controversial… But there's advanced legislation in every country and we are very proud of it," Ferreyra said.
In a significant step for same-sex equality, a gay Argentine couple were the first same-sex couple to be wedded in Latin America…
A second couple followed just a few months later in Buenos Aires.
