LGBTIQ+ skiers drenched the Andean slopes nestling this ski resort with rainbow colors on Friday at the opening of the first gay skiing event in Chile. Dozens of activists brought skis, sleds, and snowboards to slide down the slopes of Farellones in Santiago de Chile to defend equality and their rights to sexual choice in a joyous environment on a bright day. The event took place at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters, between the hills of the Parva and El Colorado. With government assistance, the event will run through the weekend to boost tourism two years after the Covid-19 crisis. “Given the circumstances, the event is crucial for us. The global pandemic that we endured for two years is now coming to an end,” Cristian Rodriguez Bimfa, who is in charge of the economy for the metropolitan area, told EFE.
