New Venezuelan Constitution Would Protect Gay Rights

The new Venezuelan Constitution, which will go to the vote in December, will be the first in Latin America to protect citizens on the basis of their sexual preferences.

Under the new amendments added to the constitution, sexual orientation will be added to the categories protected under human rights.

The amendments will also make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age and health condition.
