In a new law that applies only to the capital, Mexico City has seen 271 gay and lesbian marriages since March 4. While 142 marriages took place between men, and 129 between women, all but 18 were Mexican citizens. This is the first law in Latin America allowing same sex marriage. The Mexico Supreme court is looking into challenges of the new law and is expected to release a decision in August. The current law stands in effect until the Supreme Court issues it’s ruling.
