Javier Corrales, professor of political science, was among the experts commenting in a recent Washington Post story about a lesbian couple in Colombia seeking legal recognition of their rights as a couple and parents. The Post wrote that Corrales, “who has closely studied the gay rights movement across several countries, said the region may be on the cusp of a revolution. But he described fierce pockets of resistance across the Americas, places where homophobia and violence are common.”
