Guadalajara, Mexico, Oct 22 (EFE).- LGBTQ dance company Mexico de Colores presented a show in the Mexican city of Guadalajara on Saturday to highlight discrimination, transphobia and pride in sexual identity. A total of 17 dancers gave life to 13 dance pieces combining traditional dance styles and cabaret with Mexican mischievousness, black humor and a message of tolerance toward the LGBTQ community. The all-male dancers took a trip to all corners of the country to music of different styles including, son jarocho – a Mexican folk music style from Veracruz -, traditional Purépecha music, the jarabe tapatío, and the danzón. One of the pieces took as reference the Adelitas – women who fought in the Mexican Revolution (1910-1917) -, to show transgender pride and “resistance” with one of the dancers waving the blue, red and white trans pride flag.
