MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has announced a proposal to Congress to legalize same-sex marriage across the country. Tuesday's announcement, which took place during an event in celebration of the National Day of the Fight Against Homophobia, dominated Mexico's front pages on Wednesday. "Gay Wedding, OK!" was the headline in La Prensa.
Though same-sex marriage is already recognized in Mexico City, as well as in several other Mexican states, it is still banned in 31 states, despite a Surpreme Court ruling last year stating that preventing same-sex couples to get married was unconstitutional.
Mexico would become the fourth Latin America country to legalize same-sex marriage, following Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
