Meet Colombia’s First Legally Recognized ‘Throuple’

Dimitri O’Donnell

Tucked away in a quiet corner of a community in Medellín, Colombia, is a regular, three-story house that looks almost identical to its neighbors. Over the past few weeks, it’s become famous as the home of the “trio” or the “three gay husbands” as locals now call Colombia’s first legally recognized polyamorous couple.

“Are you here to chat to the trio?” a resident asks. “We’ve seen a lot of foreigners over the past few weeks,” a middle-aged woman adds. She says she’s happy the three men are able to be themselves but doesn’t support polyamorous relationships, explaining, “I believe marriage is something between a man and a woman.”
