Costa Rica Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage As the First Country in Central America

In Costa Rica, same-sex marriage is legal from today. The same-sex marriage ban was cancelled in the night from Monday to Tuesday.   Costa Rica thus becomes the first country in Central America to allow same-sex marriage. "Costa Rica is celebrating today: marriage equality has become a reality in the country - the first in Central America!" ILGA (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association) wrote on Twitter. "We look forward to working with you: Congratulations to all who have worked so hard to make this possible!" Public television and social networks announced the legalization with a particular program about the historical fight against sexual discrimination. That was an initiative of the organization Sí Acepto Costa Rica.
