A crowd of several thousand people gathered in the Argentinian capital city of Buenos Aires Saturday, marching in celebration of the country’s status as the first Latino nation to legalize same-sex marriage.

According to Esteban Paulo, president of the Argentine LGBT Equality Rights Federation based in Buenos Aires, more than 500 same sex-couples have been married as a result of passage of the law and signature, which was signed by the country’s President Cristina Fernandez on July 21.
