Thousands marched through Buenos Aires on Saturday in celebration of LGBTQ+ equality and diversity at a colorful pride parade.
Buenos Aires dedicated a week to celebrating diversity, a week that began Oct. 28 and ended with the iconic Pride March on Saturday.

The Pride Parade Organizing Commission, or COMO, has organized the LGBT+ Pride Parade each year since 1992.
Argentina is a leader on gay, lesbian and transexual rights in Latin America, becoming the first Latin American country to allow same-sex civil unions in 2002 and the first country in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriages in 2010. It was also the first in the region to allow gay couples to marry and adopt children.
