On Sunday, over 1.6 million people marched in San Josť City to support the LGBTQIA+ rights community, according to Pride Costa Rica, the organization in charge of this massive event.



The LGBTQIA+ rights community includes those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, or asexual.



The peaceful march took place despite the decision of President Rodrigo Chaves' government to void the March of Diversity Declaration of Public Interest issued by the Ministry of Culture.






According to the government, the decree was nullified and ineffective since the ministry authorities issued it without the president's approval.



President Chaves rejected the ruling just hours before the Diversity March began. Chaves also fired Nayuribe Guadamuz, the Minister of Culture, for issuing the decree without his consent.



Despite the lack of a government decree, at least 1.6 million people attended the demonstration that took place from the Sabana Central Park to the Democracy Square in downtown San Josť.



The first Pride Parade in Costa Rica was held in 2003.



Costa Rica legalized civil marriage for same-sex couples in 2020.
