Campeche’s congress endorsed same-sex marriage on Thursday May 12, with 34 votes in favor and only one against. (The only vote against the initiative came from deputy Adriana Avilez of Morena).
Congress endorsed the amendments to Campeche state Civil and Criminal Codes, turning it into one of the first Mexican states to allow union between persons of the same sex without any hindrance.
The referendum was held in a session with members of the LGBT community and representatives of associations that demonstrated against same-sex unions.
“According to the Nation’s Supreme Court of Justice criteria, and other courts of the Judiciary of the Federation, only heterosexual marriage is intended as unconstitutional and discriminatory,” said the ruling.
Within the ruling, it is also determined that minors can not marry. Such modifications are intended to prevent infringement of the rights to equality and non-discrimination.
