Colombia debates equality

Timothy Kincaid

April 17th, 2013


After a bumpy start, the Colombia Senate will open its debate on a proposed gay marriage bill on Wednesday, April 17.

It’s uncertain how things will go. But whatever the vote, the Colombian Supreme Court has determined that same-sex couples will have the right to marriage on June 20th. This is the Senate’s chance to establish the means, method, and parameters.

UPDATE: the debate has been postponed until Tuesday, April 23rd.

Technically what the Supreme Court has said is that same-sex couples are entitled to the same legal rights. It has left open how that is accomplished. The parliament could decide to have civil unions instead.
