A Crowd Supports Gay Men Detained on Mexico Beach
Here’s a story about something that happened on a beach in Mexico with two gay men. I’ve never been there but I know many gay men who have gone. A gay couple I know once owned a condo there. So I do know, at least from what I’m told, that certain parts of Mexico are very gay-friendly. In spite of that, there was an incident recently where a gay couple was detained and a crowd formed on the beach to support them.
The couple from Canada were kissing on the beach, local news reports said. Police arrived after someone reported “obscene acts of exhibitionism.”
Here’s more. There’s a video of people showing their support. Mexico human rights commission is opening an investigation. This always reminds me of my own personal theory: things have changed, but not all that much.
