Cantinas = music = mezcal = fun

A good way to get to know Merida and its people is trought cantinas, which are popular bars with regional music, usually very pintoresque, very loudy, very animated people dancing, sometimes kitschy…. very mexican. Cantinas are also a meeting point for local gays, since in the last decades cantinas became more and more popular for the young people (back to basics).

ADDED VALUE

LGBTQ+

Our commitment is to the LGBTQ+ community by increasing visibility. When people are able to see something represented, they are better able to understand and grasp who those people are, and this creates an important shift in the social consciousness to include people from a range of different backgrounds.

While Equal Marriage is allowed by the Supreme Constitution of México, States needs to change their own Constitution. Slowly, most of the states in Mexico have done it since 2013. In the case of Yucatán, we are still on the fight with the local conservative congress to pass the bill.
