Thousands of people on Saturday celebrated the progress made in Argentina by LGBTIQ+ and women’s rights groups with hours of music and marches in downtown Buenos Aires.

The demonstration had a festive atmosphere, but the head of the state anti-discrimination office, Ornella Infante, told reporters: “We celebrate the victories obtained, but we also demand Congress deal with” trans rights and anti-discrimination bills that have been proposed.

The square in front of Congress and the historic Plaza de Mayo were packed with activists for the 30th Pride march.

People danced in the streets, musicians performed, and people in elaborate costumes held a parade of floats to celebrate a wide range of identities.
