Thousands get gay pride in gear at Mexico City march



Mexico City (AFP) - More than 50,000 people paraded, danced and called for an end to homophobia in Mexico City's gay pride march.

"While there have been some gains made, there still is not enough respect; progress needs to be made on homophobia," said Kiendra Penelope, 40, a cross-dressing dental surgeon.

The march was part of similar demonstrations taking place around the region and across the world this weekend.
