At the end of June and the beginning of July Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans and Intersex as well as supporters of the LGBTI movement in Peru go out on the streets of several cities celebrating the Pride Month with several “Marchas del Orgullo” (Pride Parades).
Commemorating this year the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersex once again proudly celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance, promote dignity and self-affirmation, and demand equal rights, respect and an end of discrimination and violence towards them with joy and creativity, but also firmness.
