Around a thousand militants from organizations of sexual diversity participated on Saturday in the annual march of the LGBTI community in Paraguay, one of the most conservative countries in Latin America, where among other things they requested that the government approve the legal changes of name to who present themselves with a gender different from that corresponding to their biological or legal sex. Among the organizations of sexual diversity that participated were Aireana, Panambí, United in Hope and Women sex workers, among others, who marched through the streets of Asunción with the slogan “For our freedom and rights”. A banner displayed by protesters said “My identity is real, it has to be legal.”
