A friend just sent this to me. I’m not sure if it’s new or old, but it translates to the following:

“In Bogotá, one can be gay…”
Public Policy for Equality of Rights of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender

It seems to be from the local Colombian organization for gay rights, marriage equality yadda yadda yadda. I find it interesting that Colombia voted to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples last summer (though the ruling doesn’t go into effect until 2013) while many of its other Latin American neighbors (and bigger friends to the north—I’m looking at you, America) are still lagging behind.

Le sigh. But at least public service ads like these exist.

    wow did not know about this. If only things here in Peru started to look better too…

    • Yeah, a friend pointed out to me and I was pretty impressed!

  3. Yeah man, Bogota was very gay-friendly. It was really refreshing to see that in a Latin American country.

    • Cool! Glad to hear it :)
