A bill has been introduced into the Chile legislature that would extend gay marriage to same-sex couples. Working with both LGBT advocacy groups, such as The Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation, and lawmakers, like Congressman Gabriel Silber Romo of the Chirstian Democratic Party, the recently introduced bill hopes to change “a man and a woman” on marriage certificates to “two people.” It would also replace “husband and wife” to “spouse.” The Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation wrote in a press release: “With this bill we are looking to eradicate the historic discrimination that affects people simply for loving and living with someone of the same sex…Respect for family diversity is at the heart of this bill that we celebrate with backing throughout the political world and also with the broad support of citizen organizations.” [WB]
