TIMEFRAME expected from 3/29/2019, 12:00 AM until 3/30/2019, 11:59 PM (America/Mexico_City). COUNTRY/REGION Guadalajara


Supporters of the Colectivo Lésbico Tapatío (COLETA) gay rights association are slated to hold a demonstration in Guadalajara (Jalisco state) on Saturday, March 30, to denounce violence against gay women. Protesters are expected to gather at 17:00 (local time) at the Andador Escorza before marching to Liberation Square. A heightened security presence, along with associated transportation disruptions, are likely in the vicinity of the march.


Mexico is the second Latin American country to enact anti-discrimination laws for the LGBT community. Nevertheless, there has been serious concern over homophobic hate crimes in the country.


Individuals in Guadalajara are advised to monitor the situation, avoid planned protests and large gatherings as a precaution, and anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence.
