Tens of thousands of people crowded Paseo de la Reforma — Reform Boulevard — in Mexico City Saturday to celebrate that metropolis’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Mexico City’s Pride parade is one of the largest in all of Latin America. Speakers implored Mexico’s leaders to pass new legislation to end discrimination. And everywhere there was outpouring of love, openness and a feeling, at least for the day, of acceptance.
