Vice president of the Commission for Diversity of the Mexico City Congress (ALDF), Rebecca Peralta León, expressed her rejection of the film ‘Pink’ by filmmaker Francisco del Toro, accusing the film of having homophobic and discriminatory undertones towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transvestite, transexual and intersex (LGBTTTI) community.

Faced with such problems, the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) legislator reaffirmed her commitment to support this sector of society, in order to provide better access to health services, education, employment and housing.

Under the Second National LGBT Congress, in the Benito Juárez auditorium of the legislature, the deputy Peralta León asked the National Commission for the Prevention of Discrimination (Conapred) to “take action on the matter,” because the film ‘Pink’ begets hatred by orientation and/or sexual preference, and promotes the stigmatization of boys and girls adopted by gay couples, saying that these children suffer depression under the sexual orientation of their parents.

The message of this film is clearly homophobic and distorts the reality of same-sex couples as well as the lives of their adopted children. It shows stereotypes that foster a negative perception of homosexuality and contributes to the production of violence against LGBTTTI persons”

— Rebecca Peralta León, PRD deputy

 

According to Conapred’s twitter page, March 1st will be recognized as Zero Discrimination Day.
