Marching Pride

Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual (GLBT) organizations in the country have invited Dominicans to join them in their 7th Gay Pride March that will take place on Sunday 13 July 2014 from Avenida del Puerto in Santo Domingo starting at 3pm. 

Friends-Always-Friends Volunteer Network (REVASA) coordinator Deivis Ventura said that everyone who believed in democracy, human rights and freedom could come together and celebrate diversity. 

Marianela Carvajal, representing lesbians in the country, said that this year's theme would be "If you love... respect." She went on to say that they wanted to call the authorities' attention to the social exclusion suffered by thousands of GLBT men and women in the country who experience discrimination just because they love someone of the same sex.
