The flag of the LGBTQ+ community was raised on the balcony of the mayor’s office Luis Michel Rodríguez, who highlighted the equality of all people on this International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia, Lesbophobia and Biphobia.

Activist Edgar Treviño stressed that the movement has left a lot of blood in the history of this city.

“The movement has left a lot of blood, a lot of people in jail, it has left a lot of people without jobs for the simple fact of being homosexual. We used to be picked up by the police for holding hands, I have lost many friends in this struggle, the most important thing is that our movement is not political, it is human, political parties are there to create public policies to help citizenship, we are a valid, palpable and working community”.

From 9 am the LGBTQ+ flag was raised in the Pitillal square, at 12 pm on the balcony of the Mayor’s office, at 1:30 pm in the Lázaro Cárdenas Park and at 6 pm in the Hidalgo Park to start the march against homophobia. At the end, the collectives presented their positions on the issue at Los Arcos del Malecon and at 8 p.m. the Miss Vallarta Pride 2023 was held in the same place.
