For those of you who live in a Spanish-speaking country, I would like to hear some of your stories, whether you are LGBT yourself or if you know anyone who identifies as LGBT.

The reason I am asking about this topic is that I am a gay man and I'm very interested in sexual and gender identity and how different this may look through other cultural lenses. I'd be grateful for any information that you all can give me. Thanks in advance!
I know that years ago Spain passed a marriage equality law well in advance of Great Britain and the USA's state by state approach. Passage of the law in Spain made big front page international news at the time. I think Argentina and Uruguay passed similar laws subsequently, but I don't know the details.
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.
