LGBTI Collectives March in Bolivia, Urge More Love, Less Hate

LA PAZ – Thousands of people from the LGBTI community of La Paz marched on Saturday under the theme “more love and less hatred,” in commemoration of the “International Day of TLGB pride.”

The message was printed on the shirts worn by the participants as well as on a colorful truck that accompanied the march.

“In recent months there has been an effervescence of homophobia in social networks and we believe that with this message we can change that feeling of society,” Alberto Moscoso, one of the representatives of the Civil Association of Social Development and Cultural Promotion (Adesproc), told EFE.

The march started from the Plaza Bolivia in La Paz and ended in San Francisco where more than 50 groups unfurled a rainbow flag that represents this group.

“Clap your hands, do not stop applauding because homophobia is about to die,” cheered some participants in the march.

For David Aruquipa, a representative of the LGBTI community in Bolivia, other demands must also be considered, such as including the criminalization of acts of hate in Bolivian legislation.

“Another claim is the recognition of our families, because we believe we have the right to have a family recognized by the State,” he told EFE.

The march was also attended by Councilwoman Cecilia Chacon and other municipal authorities who led the parade.

The mayor of La Paz, Luis Revilla, promulgated on Thursday a norm of promotion and respect for the rights of people with different sexual orientation.
