Scores of Chileans marched for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual) rights and sexual diversity in Santiago on Saturday (March 30). The march brought together families, couples and individuals in support of gay rights in the traditional, Catholic country. A common theme for marchers was gay marriage. No law is currently under consideration to allow same-sex unions in Chile. Only one Latin American country, Argentina, grants same-sex couples full marriage rights. Gay marriage is also allowed in Mexico City and the Brazilian state of Alagoas. Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Uruguay allow civil unions.
