STORYLINE

Homosexual couples from across Mexico travelled to the capital to take advantage of Latin America''s first law that explicitly approves gay marriage.

On Sunday in Mexico City, gay couples tied the knot in a civil registry building during a collective ceremony.

29 homosexual couples - 17 gay couples and 12 lesbian couples - signed the marriage register after Judge Maria Magdalena Morales announced them "united in legal marriage with all the rights and duties."

The couples then sealed their unions with a kiss amid cheers from friends, family, and other couples awaiting to do the same.

They hailed from Nuevo Leon, Jalisco, Tamaulipas, Morelos, Queretaro, Chiapas and Nayarit.

Mexico City''s legislature in December passed the first law explicitly giving gay marriages the same status as heterosexual ones.

The legislation also allows same-sex couples to adopt children.

For now, the law applies only to residents of Mexico City, though a marriage performed in one Mexican state must be recognised in the rest of the country.

None of Sunday''s couples were residents of the capital but friends and relatives provided them with the proof of address needed to get married in Mexico City.

The documents were all legal, according to the judge and the organisers of the event, and authorities never carry out investigations to verify that the couple really do live in Mexico City, one of the largest conurbations in the world.

Federal prosecutors are attempting to overturn the law, which Mexico City lawmakers argue simply gives same-sex couples the rights that heterosexual couples already have regarding social security and other benefits.

The first same-sex wedding took place on 11 March but Sunday''s ceremony marks a new trend in which gay couples from all over the country can travel to the capital to marry.
