Gay Couple Together For 27 Years First To Marry In Argentina

Jose Luis Navarro and Miguel Angel Calefato have been together for 27 years, and were the first gay couple to legally marry, in the northern province of Santiago del Estero, Argentina

Argentina is the first Latin American nation to legalize same-sex marriage. President Cristina Fernandez signed the bill into law July 21.

In the past, before the legislature approved marriage equality, several other couples — Norma Castillo and Ramona Arevalo, and Alex Freyre and José Maria Di Bello married in challenges to the country’s laws, but those attempts were annulled

Congratulations to Jose and Miguel and also to Argentina for caring about the civil rights of it’s Lesbian and Gay citizens.  Unlike the United States.  (This country should be ashamed)
