Good news for gay Puerto Rico

The infamous Resolución 99 didn't get passed. The goals of it were to restrict all marriage to unions between a man and a woman... you know, the usual. Here is gay.com's article.

On the other hand, according to El Vocero there is a great possibility of it returning next year. Jorge de Castro Font seems determined to bring it back. We'll see if he's saying that mostly to get reelected or if it'll really happen.

The Resolution drew a lot of attention a few months ago with large protests in Old San Juan against it.

I've written a little bit about homosexuality in Puerto Rico in this post but I'm due for a more complete description later.

Well, I guess Jorge de Castro Font won't be bringing this in 2009...
