Puerto Rico, which approved the equal marriage a year ago, has unveiled its first LGBTQ monument which also honors the victims of Orlando since part of them was Puerto Rican.
A few weeks ago, there has been a judge of Puerto Rico who had upheld the marriage equality ban, whereas the decision of the Supreme Court did not include US territories such as Puerto Rico as the world "territory" does not appear in the text.
In Puerto Rico, a judge decided to uphold the marriage equality ban despite the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in June.
Great news for the LGBT community in Puerto Rico since the Justice Department announced that it would not defend the marriage equality ban while a challenge against this law that prohibits marriage to same-sex couples was launched by many LGBT couples last year.
We talked a lot about numerous legalization of marriage equality across the United States, there was also briefly mentioned Puerto Rico, but not the other territories and islands of the Caribbean and Pacific where again, the LGBT community tries to get more equality.
Barely a judge dismissed an attempt to repeal the equal marriage ban in Puerto Rico, a new challenge was launched. Seriously? He really believed we were going to give up?
