A marriage between three gay men has been legally recognized in Colombia’s first official “polyamorous” union.  The the union of actor Victor Hugo Prada, teacher John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez was made official in Medellin on June 8.  “We wanted to validate our household … and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” Victor told Colombian radio station LAFM. Speaking to Colombian magazine Semana, the

men said the roots of their relationship started in 1999 when Manuel and John first met and began a relationship. That match then grew to include a third person, Alex Esneider Zabala, whom the couple met in 2004. It expanded still further when they met Victor, the youngest in the union, in 2012. The men told Semana that they lived happily in the four-person relationship for several years until Alex tragically fell victim to stomach cancer two years ago.  READ MORE
