Go Brazil….Gay Equality….

Officials in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia (pictured) announced Friday that the nation’s committed gay couples will be granted the same social security pension benefits that heterosexual couples receive.

A same-sex partner of a retiree who dies will now be able to receive the pension payments that were granted to their deceased partner, announced the Social Security Ministry. Brazil doesn’t formally recognize same-sex marriages, but gay couples have certain rights, including some related to inheritance and retirement.
