Manuel Bermudez, Victor Hugo Prada and Alejandro Rodriguez were united in what was heralded as a landmark arrangement for Colombian marriage rights, as well as a nascent movement to legally recognize

One of the men, Hugo Prada told the country’s media in a published video yesterday, “We wanted to validate our household … and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family.”

According to him, he and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights.

He added, “This establishes us as a family, a polyamorous family. It is the first time in Colombia that has been done.”
