Congratulations to the gay citizens of Puebla. According to the Yucatan Times, the Mexican state of Puebla has just legalized gay marriage. The state Congress approved an update to the state’s Civil Code, which will now recognize same-sex marriage. Now, 20 out of 32 Mexican states have legalized same-sex marriage. On top of that, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SJCN) already declared in 2015 that state civil codes denying same-sex marriages were unconstitutional. Though to this day, many Mexican states have continued to prevent gay marriage. For Puebla, this announcement and change is surprising due to the state’s deeply rooted Catholic faith and conservative society. That is what has led to the rise of the right-wing National Action Party (PAN) within the region. Though the leftist morena party is currently in power within the state, and they are the party that passed this change.
