This year's theme
The Pride edition of the LGBT Pride of Mexico City will honor the dance of the 41. In 1901, police raided a private party and arrested 41 homosexuals and transvestites. The event was a media controversy because they were members of the Mexican aristocracy. The theme of the 2019 edition is "Pride 41: Being is resisting". The poster was designed by Reyna Pelcastre Reyes.
