Brazil’s president defends same-sex unions

BRASILIA, Brazil – Brazil’s president has come out in favor of same-sex unions.

President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva says that in Brazil, “there are men living with men, and women living with women” who “build a good life together.” But a proposed law that would give all same-sex couples rights equal to those enjoyed by married heterosexuals has been stalled in Brazil’s Congress for more than a decade.

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.”
