Actualmente vivo en el sureste de México, un lugar que ocupa el 2a. lugar en actos de discriminación en México. Sin embargo, compañeras lesbianas y gays, nos dimos a la tarea de ir a la Universidades públicas y privadas para consientizar a los estudiantes sobre la homofobia y la discriminación. El impacto durante un año de esfuerzo llegó hasta hace un mes, cuando muchas personas, en su mayoría heterosexuales se unieron para pedir al Congreso, que modifique el Código Civil del Estado de Chiapas, para dar lugar a la unión de personas, con el mismo nombre: Matrimonio. Aún hoy, seguimos llevando quejas de detenciones arbitrarias a gente de la población LGBTTI, de asesinatos por razones de preferencia sexual, sin embargo, hemos, poco a poco, construído una cultura de respeto hacia lo diverso. Les envío un fuerte abrazo a todas ustedes querido hermanos y hermanas.

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.
