12 Year-Old Boy Tries To Stop Mexican Hate Parade
Over the weekend, members of Mexico’s “pro-family” hate group Frente Nacional por la Familia took to the streets across the nation to protest the inevitable passage of marriage equality.
While the anti-LGBT demonstrators saw their fair share of opposition, perhaps the most striking moment came at a rally in Celaya, Guanajuato when a 12-year-old boy stepped in front of 11,000 protesters in an attempt to stop their march.
Photo journalist Manuel Rodríguez captured the powerful image.
“At first I thought the child was only playing,” Rodríguez admitted to Regeneracion.
But Rodriguez interviewed the child later, who said, “I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred.”
