Marriage debate begins in Argentine Senate

Timothy Kincaid

June 1st, 2010

From the Buenos Aires Herald:

According to several sources, the debate is scheduled to start at 4:00pm.
Several leaders are pledged to be present, such as Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transexual Argentine Federation President María Rachid, and the head of La Fulana community centre Claudia Castrosin Verdú.

The bill aiming at allowing same-sex couples to get married posts the support of the biggest caucuses’ heads in the Upper House, Victory Front’s Miguel Angel Pichetto and Radical Gerardo Morales.

After Tuesday’s debut in the Senate, the committee will take its gay marriage debate on the road, with stops planned for the cities of Salta, Tucuman, San Juan and Mendoza starting on June 14, and lasting until June 28. The cities are all provincial capitals and among Argentina’s largest by population.

The full Senate is scheduled to take up the bill on July 14, a Wednesday, where the measure faces an uncertain future. The bill has an equal number of supporters and opponents in the chamber, according to a poll conducted by news agency DyN, but 17 senators have remained mum on their position.
