This is my latest feature for Al Jazeera, recounting recent events such as the first ever same-sex wedding in Jalisco and the protest led by members of Guadalajara’s LGBT community after a gay couple were thrown out of a local nightclub on New Year’s Eve.

I also spoke to a Bishop and a congressman from the right-wing National Action Party (PAN) in a bid to understand why they are opposed to LGBT people obtaining the same rights that they already enjoy.
