July: The Month so Far in QLBTG News

The big news of this month, of course is Argentina becoming the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage in spite of fierce opposition in a traditionally Roman-Catholic country, with what's being called a historic vote:

Sen. Juan Perez Alsina, usually a loyal supporter of the president, called marriage between a man and a woman "essential for the preservation of the species."

How long same-sex marriage will have equal status remains to be seen; already there are rumblings in the legislature.
