Participants in the International Business Forum 2015 LGBT Confex said Friday Sept. 18 that Yucatecan society has gradually overcome discrimination against the gay community, local companies have been changing the treatment towards this group, and laws are also being adapted to respect these individuals’ human and labor rights.
The speaker Apoorva N. Gandhi, Multicultural Affairs VP of the Marriott hotel corporation, said that in the United States alone there is an LGBT community of 16 million, which is an important segment and therefore Marriot trains its employees to respect and serve these people. And it is precisely this kind of awareness, training and advertising campaigns directed to this community that give recognition to their world class services.
The Secretary of Tourism Development, David Alpizar Carrillo, was another participant at this opening in the Yucatán Siglo XXI Convention Centre. He admitted that this community is no longer considered vulnerable, but is dynamic, growing, competent, with great economic impact, high productivity and deserves first class service.
The organizer and director of the Confex 2015, Ruben Sandoval Ulloa, reported that in Mexico it is estimated that at least 10 percent of the population is LGBT and that the Mexican society has gradually accepted and respected them as they are.
The event began Friday Sept. 18th and ended Saturday Sept. 19th in the XXI Century Convention Center.
