Several deputies stressed that this measure tries to settle a debt with the LGBT + community, and prevent this sector from continuing to discriminate in their civil rights.

With the vote this afternoon in Oaxaca, there are already 18 entities that recognize in their constitutions equal marriage: Mexico City, Quintana Roo, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Nayarit, Jalisco, Campeche, Colima, Michoacán, and Morelos.

Also in Chiapas, Puebla, Baja California, Nuevo León, Aguascalientes, Hidalgo and San Luis Potosí.

Since 2015, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation established that it is unconstitutional that there are state laws that consider that the purpose of marriage “is procreation and / or that defines it as that which is celebrated between a man and a woman.”
