    Even though I think most latinos are half queer I'd have to disagree.

    he Costa Rican Social Security System’s board of directors on Thursday evening unanimously approved reforms that would grant same-sex couples the same rights as heterosexual couples in public health care matters, including visitation rights, insurance coverage and the ability to make medical decisions, among other benefits. The Caja board had discussed the reforms *– promoted by Costa Rica’s LGBT community – in recent weeks. Caja officials now will have three months to implement the measures.
    Giovanny Delgado, a Caja employee and member of the Diversity Movement, said that for the first time in Costa Rica, same-sex couples officially are recognized with the same rights as heterosexual couples.
    “It is an enormously important step. It is historical in Costa Rica,” Delgado said.
