With 71 of the 92 members of the Chamber of Deputies, Uruguay, voted to legalize gay marriage, making the South American country, the third in the Americas to do so.

Supporters of the law, who had filled the public seats in the legislative building, erupted in celebration Wednesday when the results were announced.

Sandwiched between Argentina and Brazil, and with a population of 3.3 million people, Uruguay becomes the 12th nation in the world to legalize same-sex marriage.

The vote makes Uruguay the third country in the Americas after Canada and Argentina to eliminate laws making marriage, adoption and other family rights exclusive to straight people.
