T he first same-sex weddings have taken place in Costa Rica, after a landmark court ruling came into effect at midnight. As the brides kissed, guests in attendance cheered and threw rainbow rose petals. Monday night marked that deadline, and the move has been welcomed by human rights activists across the region. Despite opposition from religious groups and a handful of lawmakers, Costa Rica is the first country in Central America to legalize gay marriage, and the sixth in Latin America. But although legislation in recent years has moved to enable gay couples to marry in Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and parts of Mexico, the LGBTQ community still faces widespread discrimination and violence throughout the region.

Costa Rica celebrates first same-sex weddings
What happened in Costa Rica is the type of civil rights victory one should expect when a country adopts a model of governance merging social inclusion with liberal institutions, and rejects populism in favor of the rule of law. Same-sex marriage has become the standard in largely wealthy democracies, but remains rare almost everywhere elsewhere. There is a reason for it. Opposition to same-sex marriage tends to be widespread and virulent, at least initially. Costa Rica was no exception.
The first same-sex weddings have taken place in Costa Rica, the first Central American country to equalise its marriage legislation. A lesbian couple became the first to tie the knot in a ceremony that took place just after the new law came into effect at midnight. President Carlos Alvarado said the law change meant Costa Rica now recognised the rights lesbian and gay people had always deserved.
