(Newser) – Mexico City—the first city in Latin America to legalize gay marriage—is reaching out to Argentina—the first country in the region to do so. The first Argentine couple to wed under the new law will get a free honeymoon to the Mexican capital. The tourism minister says the offer is to pay tribute to tolerance—"but also to promote gay-friendly tourism," reports AFP. From somewhere, he brandishes a stat that says homosexual tourists spend 47% more than their hetero counterparts.
