Luján & Julieta’s Wedding

¡Más vale tarde que nunca (better late than never)! I finally picked some wedding pictures! I know it’s been over 2 months since the wedding but, in my defense, we have over 700 photos and it was very hard to decide. September 28th 2013 – springtime in the Southern Hemisphere. […]

Forgive and forget

As I mentioned before, I’m getting married in a few days (this weekend, actually!) and I’ve been thinking quite a lot. I’ve never dreamt of a wedding and I don’t think of it as a magical day and I don’t have certain expectations. I’ve been going with the flow and […]

When things don’t go as planned

Plans rarely go as they should (at least for me) but that doesn’t necessarily mean things go bad; quite the opposite, actually. For example, let’s go back to May 17th, 2010. I was in this LGBTQ group in the Socialdemocratic Youth Organization,  planning some urban intervention in Santa Fe  for […]

2012 rocked! (Highlights in Argentina’s path to equality)

I realized this is my last post in 2012. I wanted to make a video with this year’s highlights but so many things happened that it’s taking way longer than I expected so I decided to pick the best moment in 2012. I’ve mentioned a loophole in same-sex marriage laws […]

Uruguay: Closer to Marriage Equality

Uruguay’s Chamber of Deputies approved marriage equality last week, if the Senate approves (and it seems like they will!), president José “Pepe” Mujica may promulgate this early in 2013. Remember the loophole about last names I mentioned in my previous post? Well, my neighbors from Uruguay were smart and included […]

¡Arriba México! Moving forward on Marriage Equality

Last week some amazing news came from Mexico regarding same-sex marriage. To understand what’s going on, I had a long chat (more than two hours!) with Mexican activists Criseida and Ana. They have been blogging as Las Dos Mamis since 2006 as Las Dos Mamis. Their blog was one of the […]

It’s doodling time!

Since I’m at a congress 550 miles away from home and I terribly miss my partner, today I will post some drawings she made for the “playroom” section of the lesmadres Website. You can download a version to print for kids (or adults!) to color by clicking on the thumbnails […]

Something on Lesbian Families and School

One of my biggest concerns when I started thinking about having kids was how the education system would treat my family. Other than the Health System, School is perhaps one of the first institutions we have to face. This seems to worry a lot of us because questions regarding these […]
