Gay Marriage now happening in Mar del Plata

Gay Marriage now happening in Mar del Plata • Since I have got here I have been listening over and over from many hotels and ballrooms… the phrase ” OH you do gay travel… we are getting some wedding bookings here in Mar del Plata and all over the coast area of Buenos Aires…” Way to go…. !!!!
And this was confirmed to me this morning while taking my morning coffee and reading LA CAPITAL newspaper… (to be honest I was in a narcissist act of finding  my face on the front cover of this newspaper ha ha ha …. but they told me that would be tomorrow… ha ha ha…. maybe. !!!). There you go ANOTHER great reason to visit Mar del Plata. CM

Gay Marriage NOW coming to Uruguay. ?


Gay Marriage NOW coming to Uruguay.? Today while I was having my breakfast at Casa los Jazmines, to my surprise, Gay Marriage coming to Uruguay was one of the main topics of the Sunday edition of EL PAIS newspaper (among the most important in Uruguay), together with an very interesting article about Gay Adoption. It seems the domino effect once again is working between Argentina and Uruguay, and this time looks like it would be in favor to our community and rights. Uruguay already has the Civil Union, and soon I see the Gay Marriage passing. Both Lacalle and, for Sanguinetti former presidents of Uruguay pronounced their points of view in favor to same sex couples to be honored with the same rights as straight couples, with their own restrictions. Lacalle supports more the position of same rights without the use of the name or institution of Marriage, and is not in favor to the adoption. On the other hand, Sanguinetti, with a more liberal and pro gay attitude goes for the full rights.

So it seems that the new trend will be to GO SOUTH if you want to get married. And I at CM by Carlos Melia will be waiting to coordinate all the travel and wedding arrangements. It is an exciting time to be in this part of the world. CM
