Pop the bubbly! Toss some confetti! Book a flight!

By a 33-27 vote, as reported by our sister site Advocate.com, Argentina's senate has legalized same-sex marriage, beating a scourge of lobbying by the Catholic Church to become the first country to do so in South America.

Beef, fashion, wine and culture, not to mention the men—Argentina is already one of our favorite destinations. Its tango with full LGBT equality has just put it over the top. So in the spirit of responsible tourism, reward those who respect us and spend those pink dollars right!
