Chile Signs Same-Sex Civil Union Law
Chile's President recently signed a law that permits same-sex unions. The law grants many of the rights and privileges that married couples have, but it separate and not exactly the same. Many other counties in South America already have same-sex union laws, but Chile is late to follow with its conservative history. Being gay was only decriminalized in 1999 following the death of a gay man and the national debate around it.
