In many communities in Baja California, there is a need for more LGBTQ+ input in government decisions, according to María Teresa Díaz Estrada, political director for Baja’s LGBT Cultural Community Association. Díaz Estrada also believes more decision-making roles within government need to be available to LGBTQ+ professionals. “This has to work statewide,” she said. “In cities like San Quintín, there’s no diversity role, same in Ensensada and San Felipe. In Mexicali, (state’s capital), we have a human rights department, but that’s all. As activists we have made strides here in Tijuana.” In Tijuana, Edoardo Rodríguez is the director of the city’s Diversity and Inclusion department and is part of the city’s administration.
