Everybody who follows Latin American affairs is probably familiar with the pathbreaking 2010 law in Argentina legalizing gay marriage and adoption. But many people may not realize that, while only Argentina, Can- ada, Mexico City, and a few states in the United States have approved gay marriage laws, LGBT rights are expanding almost everywhere.
