Lula, Brazil’s President in favour of gay unions
President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva recently said that in Brazil, “there are men living with men, and women living with women” who “build a good life together.”
He also a proposed to give a new impulse to a law that would give all same-sex couples equal rights to those enjoyed by married heterosexuals, because it has been stalled in Brazil’s Congress for more than a decade.
Lula da Silva said in an interview aired late Wednesday night by the government-run TV Brasil that politicians who oppose same-sex unions and yet seek the votes of gay men and women during elections are “hypocrites.”
Let’s hope this kind of thinking spread between the rest of the presidents of the world.
