A group of about 30 people who make up the Colectivo Transgénero de Yucatan and similar transgender groups got together in the evening of Sunday March 31st, at Merida’s Plaza Grande to commemorate the International Day of Transgender Visibility.

The activists asked in signs and banners not to be rejected by society and claim that have the right to be respected. They also took a sewing machine to make a flag allusive to the transgender movement and carried out various activities to express themselves publicly.

Most of the attendees were dressed as women, demanded respect for their right to wear whatever clothes they choose to wear, and also asked for protection by means of law.

They also claim that it’s their right to have access to hormonal treatments and/or surgery in order to complete the sex change procedure.
