We are happy to see that the LGBT movement keeps on growing and the social stigma against those who dare to challenge the "traditional" gender and sex classifications is gradually being overcome. People should be free to live openly and plentifully their sexual and gender identity.
Happy LGBT pride!
However, the fight against homophobia, lesbophobia, transphobia, AIDS stigma, anti-intersex, genderism and several other prejudices is not over. LGBTIQ people still suffer violence and their dignity, equality of rights and self-affirmation is often challenged.
Madrid hosted the Wold Pride 2017. Over a million people have celebrated the 40th anniversary of the first LGBT Pride protest in Spain. Spain is a vivid example of how it is possible to transform a very traditional and prejudiced society into one of the most open ones in just a few decades.
