With same-sex marriage and adoption finally being made legal in 2010 in México City, this year’s 32nd annual Gay Pride Parade is expected to be the largest ever.

Past Pride parades have drawn 500,000, but this year’s is expected to draw 1 million.

The Gay Pride Parade, known as Marcha del Orgullo LGBT, will be Saturday, June 26, at 11 a.m., beginning at the Angel of Independence on Paseo de la Reforma in México City’s La Zona Rosa. La Zona Rosa is known as México City’s LGBT business and entertainment district.

This march is also being called the “La Marcha del Bicentenario,” the Bicentennial March, since México celebrates 200 years in 2010 of independence from foreign occupancy.
