Mexico City is getting ready to celebrate its 41st LGBTTTI Pride March, an event that seeks to promote sexual diversity and protest against discrimination. As in previous years, the March will feature Mexican stars and celebrities who will take part in the event to celebrate our differences through art. This year’s theme will be “Orgullo 41: Ser es Resistir” (Pride 41: To Be is to Resist).

It is worth noting that the number 41 is of particular importance to Mexico’s LGBTTTI community, since it alludes to a police raid made in 1901 under mandate of President Porfirio Díaz, who ordered to break up a party of homosexuals from Mexico City’s high society. This historic episode became known as “The Dance of the 41.”

The event will take place on Saturday, June 29, starting in the Angel of Independence at 10:00 a.m. The famous movie director Manolo Caro, known for making the Netflix TV series La Casa de las Flores, will be one of the main hosts of the 2019 Pride March.

Today we bring you a list of 10 celebrities that have confirmed their assistance to this world-class event:

1- Pambo: One of the most important LGBTTTI activists in Mexico, she is a singer and musician who has participated in several campaigns against discrimination.
