Three gay men say they have increased legitimate acknowledgment as the principal “polyamorous family” in Colombia, where same-sex relational unions were sanctioned a year ago.
We needed to approve our family… and our rights, since we had no strong lawful premise setting up us as a family,” said one of the men, performer Victor Hugo Prada, in a video distributed by Colombian media on Monday.
He said he and his two accomplices, sports educator John Alejandro Rodriguez and writer Manuel Jose Bermudez (all imagined), marked lawful papers with a specialist in the city of Medellin, setting up them as a family with legacy rights.
“This builds up us as a family, a polyamorous family. It is the first run through in Colombia that has been finished.”
Lawyer and gay rights lobbyist German Rincon Perfetti said there are numerous three-man unions in Colombia yet this was the first to be legitimately perceived.
“It is an acknowledgment that different sorts of family exist,” he told AFP. A decision by the protected court in April 2016 made Colombia the fourth South American nation to absolutely sanction same-sex marriage, after Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
