Introduction 21 declared that states are not obliged to allow gay marriage (The Guardian, June 24, 2010). International influence on domestic policy making can also take place through transnational activism. The deepening of connections among nonstate actors that has occurred over the last twenty years, largely the result of significant changes in information technologies, has spun webs of international networks made up of NGOs and social movements that are at times able to induce domestic policy change in areas such as human rights and environmental issues (Della Porta and Tarrow 2005; Keck and Sikkink 1998).

The medicalization of homosexuality during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century formed the basis for government policies that regarded homosexuality as a deviance and a social crime that needed to be suppressed. In some instances, the nationalistic overtones that many Latin American regimes adopted portrayed homosexuality as a threat to national security that needed to be fought. As Citizenship, Sexuality, and Gay Marriage 37 Osvaldo Bazán (2010) details in one of the most complete histories of homosexuality in Latin America, during this time Argentine homosexuals were considered apátridas (unpatriotic) by governments because they challenged the social order and were publicly ridiculed and summarily punished.

Importantly, heteronormativity has not only shaped social relationships but also those between individuals and the state, and it has conditioned the distribution of basic citizenship rights. Gay marriage necessarily challenges historically dominant heteronorms for it represents a challenge to heteronormative understandings of the relationships among sex, gender, and sexual desire. Proponents of gay marriage have argued that nonheterosexual sexualities should not only be sanctioned by the state, but that they are legitimate bases upon which to demand state protection as well as the recognition of nontraditional family units.
