Argentina’s obstacles for GLBT parents

Although Argentina legalized marriage equality in 2009, its parenting laws have not progressed. More than 1,300 couples got married in the six months that followed the implementation of the new law. However, there are more than 300 couples with adoption troubles because of a legal loophole, in which children may only be officially recognized as the offspring of one of their mothers/fathers. The organization Lesmadres has recognized this and is working with other institutions to find an administrative solution, which will then have to be approved by the Interior Ministry.
