On June 25th, Movimiento Diversidad organized a massive Pride Parade in downtown San José. Costa Rican government officials, corporations, and a handful of embassies joined in support of the LGBT community through Avenida Segunda and Paseo Colón. A record-breaking 80,000 people marched last Sunday.
Democrats Abroad Costa Rica was present at the event. DACR proudly displayed a rainbow colored Classic VW Bus. Hundreds of people took pictures of the bus and were given Resistance Summer postcards.

We plan to participate next year. Stay tuned!

A Classic VW bus will be painted in rainbow colors, and we will march alongside with banners.
