Argentina became the first country in Latin America to approve of gay marriage. Alex Freyre, 39, and Jose Maria Di Bello, 41 were married at Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego. Although their union is still being challenged at the country's Supreme Court for all accounts it is the first ever in the country.

"We got married today in Ushuaia," an exultant Alex Freyre told the Todos Noticias news channel in Buenos Aires by telephone.


Buenos Aires in Argentina was the first Latin American city to approve same sex civil unions in 2002. Same sex civil union was also legal in Colombia and el Salvador.

Uruguay has also recently spearheaded a liberal changes in Latin America with the approval of a sex change law, adoptions by gay couples as well as civil unions for gays.
