There was a good turnout from the community at this years "Feel the Love" pride parade. This was a largely grass roots event with a few regional celebrities joining as VIPs. The parade started in Plaza Kioto and ended at the Cancha Municipal of Zihuatanejo. While Zihuatanejo and the Costa Grande has a largely "live and let live" mentality towards the LGBTQ community, there is still a need for more education. Marriage equality still hasn't been implemented in Guerrero state, work protections for the LGBTQ community are not enforced and stereotypes of the LGBTQ community is still perpetuated. Despite those concerns, we were well received by the spectators along our route and it was fun, safe and educational event. Casa Arcoiris thanks the hard work of the committee who organized this event and for inviting us to participate.
