Spanish-language network Univision this week aired its first gay wedding on the popular soap opera Amores Verdaderos (True Loves).

Estefano Longoria Aradane (played by Archie Lanfranco) and Jean Marie Bonjour (Ruben Branco) married in a civil ceremony. At the last minute, Estefano's mother decides to attend the wedding, saying that her role is to be by her son's side at this moment. (The video is embedded on this page.

LGBT rights advocate GLAAD called the episode “historic.”

“This moment was historic on many levels,” the group wrote in a blog post. “It was the first time a gay wedding aired in a novela produced and distributed by Mexico's largest – and notoriously conservative – media conglomerate Televisa.”

According to GLAAD, the episode aired in Mexico nearly three months ago.

While Mexico City legalized gay nuptials nearly 4 years ago, a recent Supreme Court ruling is paving the way for its broader adoption throughout Mexico.
