Chile approves civil unions

Advocates in Chile are celebrating after civil unions were approved Jan. 28. Chile's President, Michelle Bachelet, has said she would sign the legislation which has been in the works for several years. The Washington Blade does a great job of explaining the complicated road to justice and equality for the Chilean LGBT community updating the overview that Pedro Garcia gave the Huffington Post in 2012. "This gives us the momentum to tell young people that things really are improving. Now, we can say with more certainly that there will be a beautiful and hopeful future," said Felipe Villarreal,  Executive Director of Fundación Todo Mejora.
