BRAVO BRAZIL: Supreme Court awards gay couples equal rights as married heterosexuals

¨Brazil's Supreme Court has voted overwhelmingly in favour of allowing same-sex couples the same legal rights as married heterosexuals.

The decision was approved by 10-0 with one abstention.

The ruling will give gay couples in "stable" partnerships the same financial and social rights enjoyed by those in heterosexual relationships.

Brazil is the world's most populous Roman Catholic nation and has an estimated 60,000 gay it all HERE
