Equal Rights for gay couples in Brazil

by Anonymous in General , 06 juli 2011

In Brazil, gay couples will have the same financial and social rights as married straight couples. The ten judges of the Brazilian High court decided unanimously.

The registered partnership arranges matters concerning pensions and succession. It’s still not possible for gay people to get married bus gay rights activists still think the move of historic proportions and a giant step towards equality for gay couples.

The Catholic church was dead against the introduction of a registered partnership for gays and lesbians. Brazil is the country with the most Catholics in the world so the issues are rather sensitive.

After Uruguay and Argentina, Brazil is the third country in South America to introduce legislation for same-sex couples. Argentina has followed the Dutch example and made it possible for gay couples to get married.
