Satya Amani Bicknell Rothon will soon be registered with the last names of the two mothers as a couple, Helen Bicknell and Nicola Rothon. LGBT rights advocates and members of the community in Ecuador are rejoicing after a historic Constitutional Court decision, which ordered the Civil Registry office to register a seven-year-old girl parented by a lesbian couple with their last names, thereby accepting the legitimacy of their matrimony. The decision which sets a precedent favoring the LGBT rights came after years of the seeking legitimization on official documents, which were first filed in September 2012.
