When political cartoonist Julio Salgado saw a photo showing a 12-year-old boy standing in front of a crowd that over the weekend was marching against a proposal to legalize same-sex marriage in Mexico, he had a knee-jerk reaction. "Being Mexican and queer myself, when I saw that image I felt that I needed to honor that image by recreating it and putting in my own twist," he said. "I wanted to pay homage to that moment." Salgado drew a black and white political cartoon that mirrored the original photo of the 12-year-old boy. He drew the marching crowd and in front of it a banner that read "homophobia." He also drew the boy holding a flag that read "From Mexico's future, with love!"
