    Costa Rican Gay Rights Group Asks for Clear Answers on Candidates’ StanceThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Diversity Movement asked the presidential candidates clarity on issues such as unions between same-sex cohabitation and society.

    Marco Castillo, leader of this movement, explained that both Johnny Araya, candidate for the National Liberation Party (PLN) and Luis Guillermo Solis of the Citizen Action Party have spoken well above this topic.

    Castillo said he will be sending a formal letter in the coming days where they seek a clear statement about the positions that the next president would have on these issues. However, both showed some openness to civil unions between homosexuals.

    “The respondents have said publicly that they agree with the lifestyle but not marriage. The candidate who was the most open was José María Villalta. They (Araya and Solis) have said they support gay rights within companies but they have not made any pronouncement othewise,” said Castillo.

    In July last year, at least six gay couples were presented to various family courts in the country to file the paperwork in order to legitimize the unions. That was one of the most important steps in the gay marriage movement in Costa Rica.

    “Let’s send them a statement again, to be more clear and specific. Possibly by the end of this week we will draw up something, in conjunction with other human rights organizations, “said Castillo.
