The evolution of marriage equality as a policy issue and as a new social norm in Latin America
MetadataShow full item record
The central question my research will address is the following: how has the issue of marriage equality evolved differently among Latin American countries and to what extent does it still remain contentious? The case studies I will explore are Argentina and Mexico. For each country, I will explore four areas: (1) early gay organization; (2) the emergence of marriage equality as a policy issue; (3) social context; and (4) the enactment of marriage equality. While the majority of my research focuses on the years from about the beginning of the 21st century to the present, I will often revert to decades that precede this time period to discuss early activism and other historical factors.About the author:Jacob Waugh is a political science junior from Stillwater, Oklahoma.
