Reuters is reporting that Civil Unions are coming to tiny South American country Uruguay.

Uruguay will legalize civil unions for homosexuals and heterosexuals next month, making it the first Latin American nation to treat gay and straight couples alike, a lawmaker said Thursday.

Deputies in the early hours of Thursday passed legislation allowing gay and straight couples to form civil unions after living together for at least five years.

The law must return to the Senate for revisions but is expected to be in place by mid-December.

I remember the episode of “The Simpsons” where Bart goes to Australia. When he shows Homer a globe, Homer points out Uruguay and says, “U R gay. hehehe!”
