SALAMANCA, Gto. – On Saturday, August 27, members of LGBT community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) marched along “Faja de Oro” street in the Salamanca downtown area, demanding respect for their rights.

People from different municipalities of Guanajuato and members of the MORENA political party flanked multicolored rainbow flags, which represent their pride and their struggle as a community.
