Around 1,500 women turned out for Mexico City's First Lesbian March on March 21.
They walked from the city's famous Monument to the Revolution to the ZĂ"calo, the nation's political epicenter, chanting, 'We aren't five, we aren't ten, fucking government, count us right!' ( 'ÂˇNo somos cinco, no somos diez, pinche gobierno, cuĂ©ntanos bien!' )
' [ At the end ] , we started running towards the ZĂ"calo and took over almost the entire magnificent plaza,' said marcher Monica Taher of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. 'We hugged, screamed and listened to the organizers speak.'
The organizers said Mexican lesbian-feminists need to create autonomous spaces in which they can work without compromising their ethics to build a society that is critical of heterosexism, neoliberalism and other fundamentalisms.
