Let's Get Married in Buenos Aires!

Argentina now has gay marriage! And it's all legal from the Rio de la Plata to the Tierra del Fuego. Well what do you know!

The country that gave us Evita and turbulent politics now just wants to tango. It probably helped that the local population hasn't forgotten Roman Catholic Church complicity in the Dirty War.

I wonder when The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave will get around to living up to all of its hype? I would be nice to see the USA find some identity other than the Empire of the Bitter Old White People.

Better by far than hiking the Appalachian Trail.

SRSLY (to your last comment).

I have an online friend, a (straight) Argentine woman.

A marriage-of-convenience might be my last resort! ;-/
