South Africa: Gay Weddings!
The Constitutional Court ordered that parliament amend marriage laws to allow gay weddings within a year.
The constitution outlaws discrimination against gays and lesbians, but social attitudes remain more conservative.
The court ordered that the definition of marriage be changed from a "union between a man and a woman" to a "union between two persons".
Last year, the Supreme Court of Appeal had ruled in a case brought by a lesbian couple that the current law discriminated against homosexuals.
