Mexico City awash in colour for Pride march

After 2020's muted Pride celebrations due to the pandemic, the city's LGBT community took to the streets with rainbow-coloured faced masks in a show of solidarity.

The march celebrated the advances the community has made in areas such as marriage and adoption, but participants also acknowledged there are many challenges still ahead.

Mexico City is home to the most visible gay community in the country and couples freely express affection in many parts of the city. However, outside the capital attitudes differ sharply, with an impunity towards discrimination and reports of violence against LGBT citizens, activists report.
