Colombia has come a long way when it comes to LGBT rights, but sadly they have taken a step back with the current situation with the education system. Many people are marching in protest against Gina Parody, Education Minister of Colombia, who openly identifies as homosexual. These protestors are calling for Parody to resign after she required that schools in Columbia protect their students against discrimination based on sexual identity or orientation.
These protests were full of hate, but LGBT influencers from Colombia decided to combat the hate with LOVE. Juan Pablo created a video (see below) to inform everyone about this situation and the response has been so great they wanted to expand it to the global LGBT community by partnering with MOOVZ.
The campaign #EDUCATETOLOVE is now trending on MOOVZ, with thousands of users holding up signs with the #educatetolove as a way to show support of our LGBT brothers and sisters in Colombia
