June 29, 2024 6:16 PM IST

Over a hundred same-sex couples tied the knot on Friday (June 28) in a group ceremony that was both romantic and political as part of Mexico City’s gay pride celebrations month.

According to reports, 147 couples expressed their commitment to one another in a heartwarming gathering, epitomizing their years-long fight for equal rights.

The ceremony started with a concert by the Gay Choir of Mexico City, followed by a civil ritual to exchange vows and formalize the marriage.

Mexico City was in the global vanguard regarding same-sex marriage. The metropolis legalised such unions back in 2009.
