Late Wednesday night, the Argentine Senate voted 33-27 (with three senators abstaining) to pass a law allowing Gay Marriage. A crowd gathered before the Congress building in Buenos Aires to rally in support of the law’s passage. To keep the crowd entertained, American/Argentinean musician Kevin Johansen and Argentine artist Liniers performed in concert at Plaza Congreso.
