Marriage in Mexico?

From the Advocate:
A lawmaker has proposed changing Mexico City's laws to extend marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples. ....

“We only want everyone treated equally under the law, there is no intention to violate anyone's rights, this simply acknowledges the rights of one social sector with no detriment to another,” he said, reported Agence France-Presse.

I was under the impression that same sex marriage was legal in two Mexican states already.

There actually is the State of Mexico, and D.F., Distrito Federal (much like our D.C., District of Columbia,) and the City of Mexico... which Mexicans often refer to simply as "Mexico."

If Mexico City does not already allow same sex marriage, perhaps it is D.F. where it is legal.

I live in Mexico and in my opinion, Mexicans on the whole are a lot more accepting then the general impression.
