Judges (known as Ministers) in the First Chamber of the Court have sided with three state laws in Nuevo Leon, Chiapas and Hidalgo, which give legal protection to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgenic, transvestite and inter-sexual communities (LGBTTI).
Members of these communities argued that the laws of these states, with regards to marriage and cohabitation, were discriminatory.
They also demanded the payment of compensation, as those affected could not get married or exercise cohabitation rights due to the discriminatory laws.
The court decision came, coincidentally, after a demonstration by the LGBTTI community in the capital, which was however small compared to the one called by organizations which affirm and defend traditional families.
Several organizers of the LGBTTTI demonstration, including the deputy, Jose Alfonso Suárez, of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena), said that although things have changed with regards to respect for sexual diversity in the country, there is still a fear, that the LGBTTTI community will have to confront religious, anti-gay groups.
