I'm 17 years old and I've been born and raised in Monterrey city one of the 3 biggest citys in mexico. Most of the people think that in the country gay people its not usually accepted, at least in my city we are, there are alot of asociations for GLBT comunity, one for almost any characteristic of ur own, youth, mother, discriminated, etc.

In every school i've been there have been seminaries and different kind of instructions about homosexuality there is some homophobic people but there are not as many an other places.
