But most Costa Ricans would. A national poll on sexual diversity gave a snapshot on Tico opinions about LGBT rights, including on topics like same-sex marriage, adoptions and gay public displays of affection.
President Laura Chinchilla said Tuesday she would not object to a ruling legalizing gay marriage. Two gay couples, as part of the Diversity Movement, asked a Costa Rican court Monday to be married in a civil union, in order to draw attention to the issue.
Chinchilla made the statement during the last day of her visit to California, as part of a 6-day visit to the United States. The Latin American leader noted during her campaign for president in 2009 that she was a supporter of traditional marriage. She maintains that belief. However, she qualified the issue by saying that if a Costa Rican court allowed gay couples to marry, Chinchilla would not oppose the decision.
But she does not consider gay marriage part of her "national agenda."
