Multiple LGBT Couples On The Central American Caravan Get Married In A 'Mass Wedding'

Roughly 80 LGBT caravan riders traveling from Central America to the United States broke away from the main group and headed towards Tijuana separately. When they got to Tijuana, officiants from the Unitarian Universalist delegation on Saturday threw a mass wedding where at least seven LGBT couples wed, The Hill reported. Baja California, where Tijuana is located, is one of a handful of states that recognizes same-sex marriages in Mexico.

“This is really a dream come true, because you don’t see this in our home countries and this is something that we’ve always wanted to do, and today we had the opportunity to do so. I’m very happy,” Guatemalan Pedro Nehemias Pastor said of his marriage to Honduran Erick Alexander.

“This is an act of justice,” Hugo Córdoba, one of the three officiants from a Unitarian Universalist church delegation who married the couples, told NBC News. “The dream of marrying is an illusion for most of them. We are helping them make this a reality.”

Many of the LGBT caravan riders are leaving countries dues to their country's stance on gay rights. According to Amnesty International, LGBT individuals in the Northern Triangle of Central America have a high murder rate. Countries in the Northern Triangle include El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, all of which have the highest murder rates in the world.

The caravan arrived at the United States-Mexico border last weekend. Caravan riders traveled more than 2,000 miles and hope to gain asylum in the United States, despite fierce backlash from the Trump administration.
