Organizations of sexual diversity return to the streets this saturday november 6 on the 30th edition of LGBTI + pride, after having gone through a pandemic that forced them to interrupt for the first time the historic moment of encounter and struggle that unites the Plaza de Mayo with the National Congress once a year.

On this occasion, the demonstration will be marked by the celebration of the rights obtained and also by the claim of the points still pending. One of the main slogans of the march will be the need and the urgency of a comprehensive trans law and of the law known as Recognize is to repair, promoted by Lohana Berkins, a recognized transvestite reference who died in 2016.

On the other hand, this Saturday afternoon will be a time to celebrate what has been achieved in recent years in terms of expanding rights for feminisms and sexual dissidents, whose three milestones in recent times have been: the sanction of the abortion law, in December 2019, the national approval of the transvestite and transvestite job vacancies and the change established in Presidential Decree No. 476/21, which makes it possible to process a DNI and non-binary passport, that is, it adds the possibility of choosing an X, to record the self-perceived gender, instead of an F or an M.

In the Plaza de Mayo and in front of the Congress there will be stages where different artists will participate, with the readings of the organizations and with the speech prepared by the organizing committee, which will be read by activists, artists and community leaders. The line up of the invited artists is the following: Max Vanns, cumbia singer Ayelén Beker, Folklore por todes, rappers Sara Hebe and Miss Bolivia, DJ Alan Fabulous and DJ Fabián Gradios Jara.

From 11 in the morning in the Plaza de Mayo the Pride Fair, which will run until 4 pm. There will be different stands and stands of the participating organizations and the trucks and floats that will participate shortly after the march will be prepared. From 4 pm the march itself will take place, from Plaza de Mayo to the National Congress.

In relation to the three decades that have been celebrated since the first pride march in the City of Buenos Aires, promoted by pioneering leaders of activism in Argentina such as Carlos Jáuregui and Ilse Fuskova, the Executive Director of 100% Diversity and Rights Ricardo Vallarino held that this Saturday we will vindicate our history of pride, community and struggle and our advances. The number thirty gives us the opportunity to see where we started from, to assess all the conquests since 1992 and to celebrate in particular the last, such as the trans labor quota, the recognition of non-binary identities in the DNI and legal abortion. Now, the moment demands to accelerate effective access to all rights so that equality as well as a value that identifies our society is a concrete reality “.

For its part, Marcelo Suntheim, Vice President of the Argentine Homosexual Community (CHA), stated that “this year marks 30 marches and 50 years since the founding of the Homosexual Liberation Front (FLH) and it is inevitable to stand on the podium of the rights won and observe the importance of this history of activism to conquer the laws and public policies that today give a framework of protection to new generations “.

Too, the trans activist Marcela Tobaldi, from the La Rosa Naranja organization, said in relation to the march – which this year has been declared of “interest” by the Ministry of Women, Gender and Diversity – that We are going through a new time where rights are once again recognized and expanded but the exclusion and stigma on the transvestite community has been so strong that it is urgent to implement effective measures that guarantee access to employment, education and housing so that never but prostitution is the fate imposed on our community. “In addition, Tobaldi pointed out the need to keep alive the memory of the survivors of state violence based on their gender identity,” who systematically suffered persecution, jail, torture and other degrading treatments need to be repaired so that they are guaranteed a dignified old age “.

Finally, Vallarino brought to mind the fact that “Many people from the generation of ’92 had to march to cover to avoid dismissals and social ostracism in the context of a moral panic exacerbated by the HIV-AIDS pandemic, to which our community was the first to respond. “For Vallarino, this Saturday we will be” hundreds of thousands in Plaza de Mayo and, during the month of November, in the different squares of all the provinces and cities of the country with the conviction of contributing to living in a society with, increasingly, higher levels of freedom “
