Mexican state legalises same-sex marriage and bans conversion therapy


Same-sex marriage has been legalised and conversion therapy banned in the Mexican state of Yucatan. It becomes the 22nd state in the country to allow same-sex weddings, with Sinaloa doing so in June and Baja California in August.

Yucatan’s Congress voted 20 to 5 to pass the measure allowing gay couples to marry, which altered Article 94 of the state’s constitution to define marriage as a “free and voluntary legal union” between two people.

In a unanimous vote, the legislature also criminalised conversion therapy in Yucatan and medical professionals or individuals gound guilty of practicing it will face up to three years in prison.

Congrats to Yucatan!!! Vamos Mexico!!!
