Gay Couples Demand Equal Rights As Bundesrat Debates Legislation

BERLIN, GERMANY - MARCH 22: Gabriele (L) and Susanna Herwig, who are lesbian and in a legal partnership, and one of their two children hold a sign that reads: 'Two Women Two Children - We're not a family? How are we supposed to explain that to our children?' as they join protesters demanding equal rights for homosexual couples outside the Bundesrat on March 22, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Susanna and Gabriele hope to one day be allowed to legally adopt their two children, which so far is not possible in Germany and is currently being hotly debated by politicians. The Bundesrat, Germany's second house of parliament, is today debating whether gay couples in a legal partnership should be allowed the same full rights as heterosexual married couples.
