2009 Mexico City Gay Pride Parade

Well over a million people come out in support of Mexico City Gay Pride, which takes place over several days in late June of 2009.

Mexico's high-altitude capital city has a huge and active gay population, although generally the gay scene is a bit more discreet and underground than in other major North American metropolises. The increasingly popular Mexico City Gay Pride, however, is helping to heighten the LGBT community's visibility.

MEXICO CITY – Thousands of Mexicans marched peacefully through central Mexico City in the 31st Gay Pride March at which they demanded improvements in gay rights, watched over by some 1,500 police.
