Costa Rica seeks law to allow same-sex civil unions

Costa Rica seeks law to allow same-sex civil unions

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (Reuters) – Costa Rica will this week put forward a plan to allow same-sex civil unions based on previous initiatives to change the law in the Central American nation, a government official said on Wednesday.

Costa Rica follows Chile, which in January became the most recent Latin American country to recognize same-sex marriage or unions after Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil and some parts of Mexico.

“This week we will launch (draft legislation), honoring the commitment our government made in this area and … we will open a space for consulting with various organizations,” said Ana Gabriel Zuniga, deputy minister of the presidency.

The government hopes Costa Rica’s legislature will discuss before April 30 two existing draft bills with the purpose of combining them to legalize same-sex civil unions.

Same-sex marriage, however, is not on the agenda, Zuniga said following a meeting with activists.

Gay rights activist groups praised the plan, which follows other recent moves to fight discrimination in the country such as extending some social security benefits to same-sex couples.

Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solis last year hoisted the rainbow gay pride flag at the presidential palace to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

How would you like the ever fabulous Lisa Vanderpump to officiate your wedding?

Newly ordained minister and Bravo TV Star Lisa Vanderpump recently officiated her inaugural same sex wedding ceremony in the garden of her new restaurant/lounge PUMP in West Hollywood.

Proposition Love, a fine jewelry company, designed and donated the rings and had the honor of presenting them to the couple on their wedding day. Sam Street and Jonathan Tack, founders of Proposition Love Jewelry, collaborated with Lisa Vanderpump to create the wedding rings for this very special wedding she was to officiate.

“Today I had the honour of officiating my first wedding at PUMP, beautiful couple entitled to equal rights. An emotional exquisite day! #lgbt”  – Lisa Vanderpump (@LisaVanderpump)

 

Vanderpump worked with Street and Tack for weeks on the design of the rings, an interlocking motif crafted in white gold, symbolizing the love between newlyweds Dominic and Magno and the joining of their lives together.

“It was such an honor to design rings for Dominic and Magno’s special day as well as attending their beautiful ceremony.  Lisa Vanderpump was the icing on the “wedding” cake.  She is such a great advocate for our community. -Sam Street

Prior to the wave of marriage equality sweeping the country, Street and Tack were married in California in 2008, as they couldn’t marry in their home state of New York. They are one of the 18,000 couples married during the short window of time before Prop 8 went into effect ending marriage equality in California.

It’s encouraging to see support for equality growing in the US, unlike when we were married six years ago in San Francisco’s City Hall.” -Jonathan Tack
