Same-sex marriage went into effect today in Uruguay.
Acting under legislation passed in April, Rodrigo Borda and Sergio Miranda, aged 39 and 45, flashed big smiles as they addressed a gaggle of reporters upon leaving a civil registry in Montevideo. “We are celebrating it and sharing it because this law establishes that we all have rights. There are no first and second class citizens,” said Miranda. The men said they will pick a date for their actual wedding later this month.
