Romanian top court gave equal rights to same-sex couples


Romania’s highest court has decided same-sex parents should be equaled to opposite-sex parents when it comes to their legal rights. The Constitutional Court in Bucharest stated that queer couples deserved a private and family life just as straight people do, adding that they should have their rights and obligations recognized by law. Teodora Ion-Rotaru, who represents Romanian LGBT+ rights group Accept, told the Associated Press that it was a ruling of a paramount importance because it tells same-sex couples in Romania that they are as worth as their heterosexual counterparts, even though it is going to be challenged in the country’s Constitution in a few days. LGBT+ people in Romania face a hostile culture, as shown by the three million people who signed a petition asking for the referendum on preemptively banning same-sex marriage.
