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.
Roberta Jacobson, U.S. ambassador to Mexico, also took part in the celebration.
