Uruguay, small but open

Uruguay is a Senate vote away from allowing gay and lesbian people to adopt. Their lefty coalition government led by Pres. Tabare Vazquez, has already legalized gay civil unions and ended a ban on homosexuals in the armed forces. [via AP]

Allowing easier adoption is merely recognising what already happens in nations with small populations and close knit extended families – someone is always helping to raise a relative’s child and for all intents and purposes, the family recognises them as parent and child even if the law doesn’t.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
