Mexico City legalizes same-sex marriage and adoptions

Add this to your reasons to celebrate reason spreading around the world (got word of this when I was out caroling last night; joyful news indeed!):
Mexico City, one of Latin America's largest metropolises, on Monday legalized same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex couples.

By a vote of 39 to 20, the city's legislative assembly approved revisions to the civil code to permit same-sex marriages. Five legislators abstained. [CNN]
Mexico is the second major latin-american city, after Buenos Aires, to legalize same-sex marriage.
