MEXICO CITY — Lawmakers in Mexico’s western state of Jalisco have approved a change in the state’s constitution that legalizes same-sex civil unions.
The law approved Thursday provides gay couples with numerous social benefits similar to those of married couples.
Neighboring Colima state approved a similar law in July.
The northern state of Coahuila began allowing same-sex civil unions in 2007.
